Our sports medicine specialists

Our sports medicine specialists are medical practitioners who are trained in diagnosing musculoskeletal injuries and medical problems related to physical activity and sport.

The goal of our sports medicine specialists is to help you to enjoy exercise safely throughout your lifespan, knowing that physical activity improves your chances of preventing and managing chronic diseases.

Conditions we treat

Please check your relevant hospital below for their specific services. **Not all services are available at all hospitals.

Knees are frequently affected by problems such as ligament injuries, meniscus tears, runner's knee and unstable knee.

We help people whose activities are limited by shoulder pain due to arthritis, biceps tendon rupture, rotator cuff tear, dislocation, impingement and frozen shoulder.

Elbow pain can be caused by several injuries including ruptures of the biceps tendon, tennis elbow, bursitis or osteoarthritis.

Feet and ankles
Your sports and activities can be affected by ankle injury, a bunion, foot pain or abnormal gait.

Get back to doing what you love

After a sports injury, your journey back to physical fitness starts with consulting one of our specialist sports physicians. You don’t need a GP referral to see us, but if you do have one you’ll get a larger Medicare rebate.

After a thorough examination by the sports physician, you’ll be given some options to consider, followed by a surgical or non-surgical treatment plan.

Following treatment, you’ll be referred for rehabilitation with one of our physiotherapists or rehabilitation specialists.
