Non-surgical management

Prior to embarking on surgery, it is usual to undergo a period of conservative management, or nonsurgical treatment.

After your clinical assessment and review of imaging, both nonsurgical and surgical management options will be discussed. If necessary, referral to physiotherapy or other health professionals will be provided. In many cases, pain may be minimised and function returned without the need for invasive surgical treatment.

Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA)

Mr Einoder performs RFA of the shoulder, knee and hip joints.  This is a nonoperative treatment modality for moderate to severely arthritic joints in patients who are not ready for joint replacement surgery, or comorbidities make it too risky.

Surgical methods

Surgical options for treatment of your condition will be discussed at your appointment.

Mr Einoder utilises the latest arthroscopic techniques to minimise pain and facilitate a rapid recovery and return to activity.  In some settings, historically proven open techniques still provide the best outcome with minimal risks.

Where possible, surgical accuracy is complemented by advanced computer assisted navigaiton.

Mr Einoder has trained in Robotic assisted knee surgery using the MAKO Robot.  MAKO Robotic assisted Total and Partial Knee Replacements are performed exclusively at Hobart Private Hospital.
