Orthopedic technology and tenderness

Equipped for orthopaedic excellence

Orthopaedics is the branch of medicine concerned with the bones, joints and muscles of the musculo-skeletal system. A key specialty at Matilda, we approach orthopaedics as a way to enhance patient quality of life.

The Matilda orthopaedic team includes 20 active specialists, many with expertise in orthopaedic subspecialty. Our surgeons treat conditions such as fracture, joint dislocation, osteoarthritis, deneration of the joint as well as injuries of the joint, tendon and ligament.
