North Shore Private’s Orthopaedic and Hand Surgery Unit has a long and trusted history of quality care and surgical excellence on Sydney’s North Shore. Formerly located at Macquarie Hospital, Ryde and known as the Centre for Bone and Joint Diseases, the Orthopaedic and Hand Surgery Unit opened at North Shore Private Hospital in July 1998.
We house the largest and one of the most prolific Orthopaedic Wards in Sydney. Our recent expansion has increased our Orthopaedic Ward to 76 private rooms, making it the only orthopaedic ward on Sydney’s Lower North Shore with all private rooms. The benefit is a quieter, more comfortable stay for your entire recuperating period following your surgery. Our brand new patient lounge offers a quiet place to meet visitors or rest while enjoying the beautiful view of Sydney’s lower North Shore.
The progressive specialists who choose to operate at North Shore Private use the latest in evidence based procedures to ensure positive patient outcomes are consistently achieved. Best practice standards across our multidisciplinary team, from nursing and physiotherapy to our medical staff are enforced by strict adherence to National Health Standards. Our patient centred care, means individualised treatment and one on one physiotherapy following surgery for each patient.
We have Orthopaedic Specialists that cover every limb of the body. Our co-located campus with Royal North Shore Hospital provides easy access to physicians, across all specialties such as Cardiologists, Orthogeriatricians and Respiratory Physicians. This offers our patients the reassurance that assistance across all disciplines is readily available should the need arise. Other services such as microbiology and radiology are also located on the campus, ensuring quick turnaround of results.
North Shore Private also has a reputation for specialised Orthopaedic cases, such as sarcoma surgery. We are one of the only private hospitals in Australia with this distinction.
North Shore Private also prides itself on excellent clinical patient outcomes. Our hospital outcomes for infection rates, falls and hand hygiene compared to the national hospital benchmark, can be viewed here.
