Geelong’s first Orthopaedics Group, established 1996

Serving the local community

Welcome

We are the first Orthopaedic Surgical Group established in Geelong and provide musculoskeletal surgical services tailored to the individual needs of our patients. Our surgeons are part of the medical staff at University Hospital Geelong and are committed to caring for the whole community.

Our goal is to use our knowledge and expertise to help patients lead happier, healthier lives with optimal performance.

The utmost care, integrity, knowledge and professionalism are at the core of our ethos and we are proud to serve our local and regional community with a safe environment and state-of-the-art facilities.

All surgeons have different areas of expertise, including joint replacements, hip & knee, shoulder & elbow, hand & wrist, foot & ankle, sports injuries, trauma, and paediatrics. They also contribute their expertise regularly in research and teaching at University Hospital Geelong and Deakin University.

Our private surgery is performed at St John of God Hospital and Epworth Hospital Geelong. In order to maintain the highest standards of care, we are actively involved in research and professional development, academic teaching and lecturing at conferences, assessment of students, younger surgeons and peers.
