Supporting Excellence in Orthopaedics

The Mater Hospital operates one of the busiest orthopaedic departments in the Southern Hemisphere, treating in excess of 4,000 patients each year for a range of injuries including acute and chronic injuries, sporting and work related injuries, hip, knee and shoulder replacements, as well as spinal, knee and ankle surgery. Clinicians, nursing staff and patients are involved in a wide variety of national and international research projects to improve patient care and treatment options. The Friends of the Mater Foundation is proud to financially support many of these studies.
