Dr Hamish Rae has over 12 years of experience in orthopaedic surgery and has worked in public and private hospitals throughout Sydney, Australia and the United Kingdom. Dr Rae established the Orthoelite practice with Dr Razvan Stoita to provide specialist orthopaedic services to the community of Sydney and the Southern Tablelands through two convenient locations, Hurstville Private Hospital (just off the M5), and Ellesmere Specialist Centre in Goulburn. Dr Rae operates regularly in Hurstville Private Hospital and Goulburn Base Hospital.
Dr Rae has a passion for joint replacement surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder as well as arthroscopic and open surgery of the shoulder. He incorporates modern technology including robotic surgery (now routinely used for knee replacements at Hurstville Private), patient specific instrumentation and computer navigation into his practice to ensure accuracy and precision of the placement of joint replacements during surgery. He has completed fellowships in Shoulder and elbow surgery in Sydney and complex hip and knee arthroplasty (joint replacements) in London, UK. He has worked as a consultant orthopaedic specialist at Prince of Wales Hospital, St George Hospital, Sutherland Hospital and Canterbury Hospital, before helping establish the modern orthopaedic department at Goulburn Base Hospital.
Dr Rae is an easy surgeon to talk to about your orthopaedic problems, and will take the time to make sure you understand all the information that is given and required for your care. He has always demonstrated a deep commitment to high professional standards and ethics, and works closely with teams of therapists to ensure the best outcomes. With international experience in multimodal pain management and the incorporation of physiotherapy and hydrotherapy into early postoperative management of joint replacement surgery, you can be assured that Dr Rae and his team will provide you with world class treatment during and after any hospital stay for orthopaedic surgery.
Dr Rae has shown a keen interest in research and published in numerous international journals and presented at international meetings. He continues to attend and contribute to national and international meetings. To maintain the highest standards, (voluntary) standardised questionnaires are frequently incorporated into your visit, normally while in the waiting room.
Dr Rae would like to invite you into his practice and hopes you enjoy the warm and friendly approach on offer.
