ONE of Orthopaedics ACT’s expert surgeons, Dr Chris Roberts, has been promoted to clinical associate professor at the ANU Medical School.
The specialist in hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder surgery also lectures and runs tutorials in anatomy, teaches surgery to senior medical students and takes students with him for clinical placements throughout the year.
At Orthopaedics ACT, the largest single practice in the region, Dr Roberts works alongside six other orthopaedic surgeons, two specialist paediatric orthopaedic surgeons and one sport and exercise physician.
Practice manager Deborah Henry says the practice is in an ideal position to manage orthopaedic problems, from head to toe.
“The sub-specialty trained doctors offer non-surgical and surgical treatment for all aspects of musculoskeletal injury and disease,” she says.
Orthopaedics ACT provides expertise in the treatment of injuries and diseases affecting the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments).
“All our surgeons have sub-specialty fellowship qualifications in their respective areas, having completed training in international centres renowned for their excellence, and for the complexity of the problems and surgeries that they deal with,” says Deborah.
“In addition to treatment of private patients, all our surgeons contribute to the public system in Canberra, with elective orthopaedic surgery or managing the complex trauma at Canberra Hospital.
“Our practice also has a dedicated nurse-led clinic for our patient care.”
