Adelaide Orthopaedic and Trauma Specialists are proud to announce the only direct to surgeon phone line for General Practitioners and Emergency Physicians. This one number offers direct access to one of our on call surgeons, who will take your call. This enables a streamlined referral pathway for privately insured patients to obtain the quickest and easiest care.
We wish to thank all the General practitioners in Adelaide, and referrers who attended our first event for 2014. The launch event was held at the Art Gallery South Australia and featured four surgeons from Adelaide Orthopaedic and Trauma Specialists.
Orthopaedic Trauma accounts for a significant proportion of hospital admissions every year. In Adelaide, and the greater South Australian region, orthopaedic surgery accounts for half of the surgery performed in emergency operating theatres. Surgeons must be specifically trained in orthopaedic trauma surgery in order to provide patients with the best care.
Over 80,000 joint replacements were performed in Australia last year making it one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in the country. This may well continue to rise in the coming years with the changing prevalence of arthritis and other conditions (ie fractures) that can result in a patient undergoing hip or knee arthroplasty.
Adelaide Orthopaedic and Trauma Specialists are pleased to advise that their new state of the art consulting rooms will commence construction in February. During the construction period, the consulting rooms will be temporarily located at 22 Kensington Road, Rose Park effective 20 January 2014.
Anterior cruciate ligament injury is one of the more common sporting injuries affecting the knee seen by orthopaedic surgeons in South Australia. It can occur in all age groups, ranging from adolescence right through to older age. Whilst it most commonly occurs in those playing sports it can also occur as a result of car or motorbike accidents, falls or other more benign incidents.
With the Tour Down Under 2014 rapidly approaching, the staff at Adelaide Orthopaedics and Trauma (AOTS) would like to wish all elite visiting and local tour professional cyclists and athletes, as well as those local, interstate and international cyclists who are intending to be involved in Tour Stage rides and/or general participation in the Tour Down Under events a safe ride!
Unicompartmental knee replacement or partial knee replacement is an alternative to total knee replacement in selected patients. Most commonly performed for isolated arthritis in the medial compartment of the knee, but occasionally also the lateral compartment, this operation can be performed through a smaller incision. Studies have shown that this procedure often affords the patients a more rapid recovery with a greater range of motion. It can also result in having a knee with a more “normal” sensation, or proprioceptive feedback, than with more traditional total knee replacement.
