Description

Wollongong Private Hospital is pleased to host the Australian Orthopaedics Association, Travelling Exhibition of Orthopaedics in Australia, celebrating the contribution of Orthopaedic Surgery to the health and well-being of the Australian community.

Hundreds of Orthopaedic procedures are performed in more than 300 Australian hospitals every day. Since 1999 over 1.1 million orthopaedic procedures have been undertaken in Australia.

The Australian Orthopaedic Association’s Exhibition showcases some of the developments in orthopaedics - from Ancient Egypt, through wartime to recent advances in imaging, prostheses, and surgeries which provide life-changing procedures for the Australian community. The items displayed include information on hip and knee joint replacement, the evolution of joint replacement, developments in the treatment of fractures and innovations such as 3D printing, robotics and customising implants during surgery.

The exhibition will be on display at Wollongong Private Hospital Ground Floor foyer from Friday 16 February until Friday 2 March, 2018. All members of the community are welcome to attend the exhibition. Viewing is free of charge.
