A free exhibition showcasing an 80-year history of orthopaedics in Australia is currently on display at the Buderim Private Hospital until 30 April.
Visiting the Sunshine Coast for the first time, the Australian Orthopaedic Association’s ‘Travelling Exhibition of Orthopaedics’ celebrates the contribution of orthopaedic surgery to the health and wellbeing of the Australian community.
The exhibition includes information on sports injury prevention, the evolution of joint replacement and developments in the treatment of fractures and innovations, including the use of 3D printing, robotics, computer navigation and customising implants during surgery. Display items include prosthetic models, surgical tools, x-rays and fixation devices.
All patients, visitors and members of the community are invited to attend the free exhibition which is on display on levels 1 and 3 of the hospital.
