World class care. Close to home.
The Orthopaedics team at Prince of Wales Private Hospital performs around 3000 surgeries every year. We have a highly skilled group of dedicated orthopaedic surgeons with a broad range of specialties. They are some of Australia’s most experienced joint replacement surgeons and sports injury doctors.
We use minimally invasive techniques for joint, muscle and tendon repair, using the latest generation of orthopaedic implants.
The operating theatres are equipped with specialised instrumentation and state-of-the-art orthopaedic technology, including the Airo® 3D intraoperative CT system. We can also customise surgical instruments using pre-operative 3D modelling of a patient’s own bones.

The private experience
When you choose private, expect better. As one of our orthopaedic patients, you’ll be cared for by highly specialised nursing and allied staff trained in orthopaedic patient care.
Your private patient comfort includes a soothing environment, with mainly single rooms, and ensuite as well as a private dining menu of nourishing, comforting dishes. Please be assured that our orthopaedic service is supported by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals.
Post-surgery, your orthopaedic surgeon will assess you and if you require rehab, together you’ll agree on the most suitable program.
Research shows that rehab delivered in the comfort of home is the most effective for patients. However, your surgeon may recommend an in-patient stay at a specialised facility. This will be organised for you before you leave our hospital.
