What to expect during your first consultation
Associate Professor Hope is the only orthopaedic surgeon in Australia with a PhD in meniscal tears of the knee joint.
A/Prof Hope performs his arthroscopy operations tourniquet free resulting in less pain and faster recovery.
Associate Professor Hope uses state of the art technology to perform knee replacements.
‘MyKnee’ knee replacements are bioengineering technology from Switzerland, which use computer generated 3D models of patient’s knee joints to design custom made cutting blocks specific to the individual.
Associate Professor Nigel Hope is a leading specialist in Direct Anterior Approach (DAA) surgery and was one of the pioneering surgeons to perform the operation in Australia.
DAA enables the surgeon to enter the hip joint from the front of the thigh and travel between muscles. Once the hip joint has been replaced the retractors are removed from the area and the muscles fall back into position.
