Our body is made up of 206 bones which protect our organs and help us sit, run, dance, hold loved ones, hear and much more. The Victoria orthopaedics team is passionate about finding lasting solutions, that bring back freedom of movement as much as is possible for their patients. Victoria Hospital offers a variety of Orthopaedic surgeries to reach this goal.
The Orthopaedic service includes clinics, elective surgeries and emergency surgeries. Clinics include Monday fracture clinic, Thursday elective clinic and Friday spine and fracture clinic. We have the privilege of working closely with doctors from Groote Schuur and Mitchell’s Plain who offer their specialist assistance at clinics and in theatre. We aim to offer patients excellent care in record time.
The orthopaedics team also partners closely with the Physiotherapy Department, who help rehabilitate patients.
