Private orthopaedic surgery is often cheaper than living with long-term pain
At Prince of Wales Private Hospital, relieving your pain and helping you move again is the goal of our surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists and care teams.
Our world class orthopaedic specialists and doctors have minimal wait times. And you can also speak to us about self-funding, if you don't have private health insurance. Ask your GP or physio for a referral to one of our orthopaedic specialists or doctors here in Randwick.

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.
