Orthopaedics – Robotics and other innovative treatments
Hobart Private Hospital invites General Practitioners to attend this live, online and interactive meeting with Mr Greg Harvey, A/Prof Paul Harvie and Mr Paul Einoder.

Activity ID: 211436

This meeting provides GPs with the latest information on the management of orthopaedic conditions with specific information on robotic assisted surgery technique.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Describe treatment options for orthopaedic conditions (joint disease), including the value of effective pre-operative assessment and contemporary planning systems (eg virtual planning).
2. Assess patients with specific orthopaedic conditions (joint disease), conduct relevant investigations and diagnose accordingly.
3. Recognise when abnormalities need action, and when to refer on to other medical / health practitioners.
4. Manage patients with orthopaedic conditions after discharge from specialists' care and / or hospital.
5. Utilise reference materials & specialist contact information on the topics presented to ensure continuity of patient care & appropriate clinical referral pathways.

Healthscope is a CPD education provider under the RACGP CPD Program.

GPs are invited to direct any pre-meeting questions for the presenters to Colleen Howell, Hobart Private Hospital BDM (colleen.howell@healthscope.com.au).

If you do not wish to receive further clinical updates, or invitations to educational seminars, from the facilitators, please email colleen.howell@healthscope.com.au prior to the activity.

Mr Greg Harvey MBBS FRACS
Orthopaedic Surgeon @Hobart Private Hospital, Hobart Orthopaedic Group
I was born in New Zealand and spent half my primary and half of my secondary school life in Australia and New Zealand before moving to Gippsland in 1984. I completed year 12 at Warragul High School and Medicine at the University of Melbourne in 1992. I have lived in Hobart for eighteen years having completed my training in Melbourne in 2002. I spent time in Calgary doing a spinal surgery fellowship in 2003. Over the last 18 years my practice spectrum has moved from all areas of the body to knee surgery and more recently to management of the arthritic knee adopting cooled radiofrequency ablation and the triathlon knee. The most recent change is the adoption of the Mako system to insert the Triathlon knees. I joined Paul Harvie and more recently Paul Einoder and we formed the Hobart Orthopedic Group. I have five children aged 23 to 12. My wife and I built and now part manage Eastside Activity Centre in Rokeby.
A/Prof Paul Harvie MBBS RACS PhD RCSE
Orthopaedic Surgeon @Hobart Private Hospital, Hobart Orthopaedic Group
I am a UK trained Orthopaedic Surgeon, a graduate of the prestigious Oxford Regional Training Program, followed by three years of advanced super-specialist fellowship training in Perth (Australia), Oxford and Bristol. I am a specialist focusing on complex primary & revision lower limb arthroplasty (including MAKO Robotic, minimally invasive, muscle sparing DAA hip replacement and MAKO Robotic partial/total knee replacement), hip arthroscopy and trauma. To assist with primary care colleagues I investigate and manage those patients with problematic hip and knee replacements (pain, infection, instability, loosening) using a multidisciplinary holistic approach. For me it is vital patients understand the rationale behind their treatment in order to facilitate good outcomes. I undertook a Research Doctorate at the Botnar Research Centre, University of Oxford.
Mr Paul Einoder MBBS FRACS FAOrthA
Orthopaedic surgeon @Hobart Private Hospital, Hobart Orthopaedic Group
I moved to Hobart after completing Orthopaedic training in Melbourne in 2006. I continue to work in both the public and private sector providing both elective and emergency services. I enjoy teaching the surgeons of tomorrow, presently holding the Director of Training position at the Royal Hobart Hospital. I perform knee, hip and shoulder reconstructive surgery. Regular attendances at conferences and workshops allow me to keep abreast of recent advancements in Orthopaedics. I joined Mr Harvey and Mr Harvie at the Hobart Orthopaedic Group in 2019. Since early 2020 the Group has been performing MAKO robotic assisted knee surgery at Hobart Private Hospital. I am about to complete further training in MAKO hip procedures. Outside of surgery, I enjoy sailing , skiing and spending time with my family of four school age children.
