Orthopaedic surgery

You may need orthopaedic surgery if you have a bone or joint disorder, a fracture, or a disease or tear in one of your muscles, ligaments or tendons. Orthopaedic surgeons treat all parts of your musculoskeletal system (your muscles, bones and all their connections).

Our orthopaedic surgeons care for people of all ages. Specific surgeons have advanced training to treat particular areas, such as knees, hips, shoulders and elbows, the spine, ankles and feet, and hands.

What you should know about orthopaedic surgery:

  • Our experienced orthopedic surgeons are able to treat many bone and joint problems. We use a variety of techniques, including minimally invasive procedures that mean smaller incisions and quicker healing.
  • Some of the most common orthopaedic surgeries we perform include:
    • ACL reconstruction
    • Arthroscopy
    • Carpal tunnel release
    • Fracture repair
    • Joint replacement
    • Ligament and tendon repair, including for torn rotator cuffs
    • Shoulder replacement
