About Life Healthcare’s orthopaedic services

Our orthopaedic surgeons diagnose, prevent and prescribe rehabilitation to treat injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Some of our services include treatment of orthopaedic conditions such as fractured or broken bones and damage to joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves and tendons.

We have also adopted a cost-effective approach to knee or hip replacement surgery with our Major Joints for Life clinical pathway. This approach allows the hospital and doctors’ bills to be bundled up into fixed fees, saving you some financial distress. 

Our orthopaedic facilities enable our dedicated team to provide you with world-class care. This is measured and encouraged through on-going quality training to ensure that you are always treated with the principles of empathy, ethics and patience. Whether you are an athlete or have sustained an orthopaedic injury, your recovery and quality of life is our priority.
