Orthopaedics (Bones & Spine)

Orthopaedics (Bones & Spine)

Orthopaedics aims to treat patients with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine disease, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors and congenital disorders.

The orthopaedic surgeons at Timberland Medical Centre may conduct diagnostic examination such as blood tests, X-rays, MRI or CT scans. They may treat patients without surgery by prescribing controlled medication, exercise, rehabilitation or therapies.

When a condition is serious a patient may need surgical treatment when their musculoskeletal system does not respond to any of the non-invasive treatments. The various types of surgeries our specialists perform are; arthroscopy, fusion, internal fixation, joint replacement (partial, total and revision), osteotomy and soft tissue repair.

With more than 29 years of service, Timberland Medical Centre is among the leading private hospitals and medical centres in the region (Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo and Kalimantan) that specializes in Orthopaedics; assisting in the healing of the sick so that they can enjoy a better quality of life.
