Trusted by over 5,000 patients every year

Our orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, diseases, infections, tumours, and congenital disorders.




As Queensland’s largest Catholic not-for-profit healthcare provider Mater is committed to providing consistent safe, high quality, evidence-based care and improved experiences for our patients, consumers and partners. 

Our statewide network of hospitals allows us to join expertise from our orthopaedic teams to provide our patients with treatment plans that are individualised and focused on musculoskeletal health, restoration of joint function, and eliminating or reducing pain.

Mater’s multidisciplinary orthopaedic teams include surgeons, nurses, rehabilitation physicians, physiotherapists and occupational therapists who work together to improve the quality of life for our patients.

Through detailed patient consultations our orthopaedic surgeons seek to diagnose and recommend appropriate individualised treatment plans.

If surgery is required, the orthopaedic surgeon will talk the patient about their treatment options and prepare them for what is likely to happen, both before and after surgery, including factors such as pain management, complications and mental health.

If appropriate, robotic surgery, may be offered as part of the surgical intervention treatment plan. Robotic surgery allows orthopaedic surgeons to perform  procedures with heightened precision, flexibility and control.

Mater’s current family of orthopaedic robots

Mater is dedicated to transforming the way we deliver orthopaedic care by providing the latest evidence-based health technology for our patients.

Robotic surgery, or robot assisted surgery (RAS), allows surgeons to perform many types of complex procedures with precision, flexibility and control.

Robotic surgery is usually associated with minimally invasive surgery—procedures performed through tiny incisions—however can sometimes be used in certain traditional open surgical procedures.

Through robotic surgery and its computer guided navigation and high precision intraoperative imaging, orthopaedic surgeons have greater control and flexibility of instruments and the ability to undertake advanced surgical planning.
