Living with long term pain often costs more than private orthopaedic surgery.

At Melbourne Private Hospital, relieving your pain and helping you move again is the goal of our surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists and care teams.

Our world class orthopaedic specialists and doctors have minimal wait times. And you can also speak to us about self-funding, if you don't have private health insurance. Ask your GP or physio for a referral to one of our orthopaedic specialists or doctors here at Melbourne Private Hospital.
