Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Injury

The posterior cruciate ligament is an important stabilising ligament of the knee. Injuries to this ligament make up between 5 and 20% of all knee ligament injuries.


Osteoarthritis of the Knee

The knee joint is the most common place to have osteoarthritis. It is more common in the compartment on the inside (medial aspect) of the knee though often can happen in both.


Total Shoulder Arthroplasty

Total shoulder replacement is an operation used to treat the pain caused by shoulder osteoarthritis. It may also be done if you have a very significant shoulder fracture. It involves replacing both the ball and socket of the glenohumeral (shoulder) joint with similarly shaped prosthetics.


Lateral Hip Pain

Lateral hip pain is a common condition affecting up to 25% of Australians at any given time. It used to be called trochanteric bursitis but more recent studies are showing that it is likely more related to irritation of the tendons on the outside of the hip that attach nearby.


Shoulder Instability

Shoulder dislocation is when the bone in your upper arm (humerus) is forced out of its normal position against the socket (glenoid). This is normally associated with severe pain and a visible deformity at your shoulder.


Meniscal Knee Injury

Meniscal tear is a common injury to the knee. The menisci are two wedge shaped pieces of cartilage at the edge of the knee joint that act as shock-absorbers between your thigh bone (femur) and your shin bone (tibia).
