From the President


This travelling exhibition orthopaedic exhibition showcases the history of orthopaedics in Australia. The display includes fixation and prosthesis examples, surgical equipment and banners that tell the story of orthopaedics' past 80 years.

The specialty of orthopaedics keeps our children in the game, puts the bounce back in the knees and hips of our elderly and keeps all of Australia moving with more than 1.1 million hip and knee joint replacement procedures undertaken throughout Australia’s hospital network since 1999. 

The exhibition is designed to raise awareness in the community about the breadth of orthopaedic procedures performed in more than 300 Australian hospitals every day


The exhibition includes a range of interactive and informative displays designed to celebrate, educate and stimulate, from banners showcasing the latest surgical techniques and technologies to models of bones and implants to pick up and hold.

Included in the exhibition

  • Information on the past, present and future of orthopaedic care
  • Creative and accessible exhibits for younger community members
  • A full-sized model skeleton and surgeon mannequin
  • AOA's new video – The Wonder of MovementTM is central to the exhibition
