Hollywood hosts community exhibition about the human body

Aug 23, 2017

Hollywood Private Hospital (Hollywood) is providing the local community an exciting opportunity to learn about the human skeleton and how the body works.

The hospital is hosting the Australian Orthopaedic Assocation’s travelling exhibition in its main corridor until Sunday 3 September.

The exhibition includes information about the body as well as sports injury prevention, the evolution of joint replacements, and developments in the treatment of factures. It also outlines latest innovations related to orthopaedic surgery such as 3D printing, robotics, computer navigation and customised implants.

Hollywood Chief Executive Officer, Peter Mott, said "As a leading provider of orthopaedic services to the Western Australian community, we’re pleased to partner with the AOA and showcase some of the ways we treat and care for our patients."

"Hollywood provides a comprehensive range of expertise and services aimed at enhancing mobility and quality of life for patients such as joint replacements, arthroscopic surgery and anterior cruciate ligament repairs."

"We’re especially proud of the Enhanced Recovery Program that is offered to all patients undergoing a hip or knee replacement at Hollywood."

The Program encourages patients to take an active role in their surgery preparation and recovery to help improve outcomes and reduce the amount of time they spend in hospital.

It’s run by a team of health professionals including orthopaedic specialists, anaesthetists, physiotherapists, occupational therapist, pharmacists and nurses. Patients are provided a pre admission interview, a group education session about their upcoming surgical experience, early mobilisation and a post discharge follow up.

"I would like to encourage anyone who is interested in learning about the human body or orthopaedics to come to Hollywood and view the exhibition. It’s relevant to all ages and includes a variety of interactive activities for people to enjoy," Mr Mott concluded.
