Sports & Orthopaedic Surgery

Sports and orthopaedic surgeons aim to help patients regain mobility, reduce pain, and improve the overall function of their musculoskeletal system through various treatments, which can include surgery, physical therapy, and other non-surgical interventions. This field is especially important for athletes and active individuals who may require specialised care to return to their chosen sports and activities safely.
