Hunter Orthopaedic Surgery

Our surgeon’s philosophy is to provide comprehensive management to our patients, utilising proven techniques, in an environment that is supportive, honest and experienced.

We take a multidisciplinary approach with strong ties to allied health professionals and each patient’s General Practitioner. We recognise that the medical experience is one that involves many individuals working in unison to strive for the ultimate outcome, the return to full and active function for our patients.

Our surgeon’s draw from their experiences both locally and internationally, providing a personalised service to all patients from the initial consultation, through the diagnostic process to management and rehabilitation.

Parking limited due to construction

HOS turns 10 years

Another Milestone
