What does orthopaedics include?

Orthopaedics focuses on injuries and diseases of the body's musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves, which in turn allows you to move, work, and be active.

What does orthopaedic surgery at Cabrini offer?

Orthopaedic surgery commenced at Cabrini in the mid-1970s. The volume of orthopaedic surgery has grown steadily since, with our specialists performing more than 1500 joint replacements each year. We have a high standard of infection prevention, state-of-the-art operating theatres, dedicated orthopaedic wards, onsite radiology services and a range of rehabilitation programs that can be accessed at home or while in hospital.

Cabrini specialists are experts in their field and will be with you every step of the way. With a total of 38 surgeons operating at Malvern and Brighton, we offer a full and comprehensive range of orthopaedic services.

Paediatric

Joint replacement surgery

Your orthopaedic surgeon may suggest joint replacement surgery for your hip or knee as an option if other more conservative treatments, such as medication and physiotherapy, have failed. You may still be experiencing pain and have limited mobility, especially if you have arthritis of the joint, an injury or other debilitating condition.

Joint replacement surgery, followed by an exercise recovery program, can restore quality of life, allowing people to enjoy walking, cycling, swimming and golf as well as their normal daily activities.

Covering such a broad range of orthopaedics specialities, Cabrini offers a highly-skilled and specialised emergency service to manage injuries, including both sporting and trauma based, which can commonly include fractures and soft tissue injuries. 

Cabrini’s Alan, Ada and Eva Selwyn Emergency Department is staffed by skilled and senior medical specialists who are supported by on-call orthopaedic surgeons. You will be seen by a consultant, in the most prompt timeframe possible. There is also a dedicated operating theatre for emergency surgery, which ensures surgery for your injury is performed as soon as possible.

There is medical imaging onsite and conveniently located within the emergency department, to allow for quick diagnosis and treatment of injuries.

Preadmission service

You will be contacted by our nursing preadmission service prior to your admission, who will answer your questions and cover a variety of topics including:

  • How to prepare for surgery
  • Day of surgery admission
  • What to expect during and after your hospital stay

Enhanced Home Orthopaedic Program (eHOP)

At Cabrini, we can offer you an Enhanced Home Orthopaedic Program (eHOP) following your joint replacement, designed to support your transition to home successfully.

Our inpatient healthcare team will support you to mobilise early and safely, manage pain, and regain your confidence walking as soon as possible to prepare you for home. Most patients who utilise this program can return home from hospital after two to three days.
