Our team of orthopaedic surgeons include general orthopaedic surgeons as well as sub-specialty surgeons in knee, hip, shoulder, spine, hand, ankle and foot. You can search for an orthopaedic surgeon using our Specialist Listing search function.

On the ward, our orthopaedic physiotherapists provide an early involvement to assist you to regain movement, strength and independence following injury or surgery. 

The physiotherapists from Normanby Physiotherapy work in partnership with the doctors and nurses to provide personal care to facilitate optimal recovery. This may include exercises, prescription of walking aids, gait re-education, education on slings and braces and advice on dos and don’ts, or referral to outpatient services as appropriate.

The team's priority is your recovery and safe discharge to a rehabilitation centre or home.


After orthopaedic surgery, you may need ongoing physiotherapy and support prior to returning home. Rehabilitation will be discussed with you during your hospital stay and should this be required you will be visited by the Discharge Planner who will be able to give you all the relevant information.
