About Our Clinic

We are a patient focused sports injury clinic. Our mission statement is to provide you with the best possible care ensuring you have the correct diagnosis, cutting edge (best in field) treatment, minimal downtime and return to your optimal quality of life without haste. We specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of orthopaedic sports injuries.

You don’t have to be an elite athlete to be a client of ours. Many of our patients are everyday sports and hobby enthusiasts. Our difference is we bring the knowledge of elite athlete treatment and care to you regardless of your profession. Our goal is to give you the best possible outcome and return you to a healthy and active lifestyle with minimal treatment pain and time. Our individual patient focused approach extends to guidance and post treatment recovery guidance to prevent any future injury.
