About Us

Sydney Shoulder Clinic is a group of Physiotherapists, Sports Physicians and Orthopaedic Surgeons who collectively aim to provide co-ordinated best practice shoulder care. We are a subgroup of the Orthosports, orthopaedic team. Located in Sydney, Orthosports is a professional association of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Sports Physicians and Physiotherapists that formed in 1989.

Since this time we have been developing a strong interest in shoulder care. This passion led to the formation of the Sydney Shoulder Clinic in 2004, which allowed us to provide the best practice coordinated shoulder care that you are seeking. The Sydney Shoulder Clinic is the largest multi-practitioner shoulder service in Sydney. We have five orthopaedic surgeons, three physicians and physiotherapists who have extensive experience in the management of shoulder problems.

Most people with shoulder problems can be assessed by our non-surgical team, i.e., a Physiotherapist or a Sports Physician. Such an assessment usually allows us to determine

appropriate management. If you require a surgical opinion, then an appointment with one of our Orthopaedic surgeons can be arranged promptly.

Most shoulder problems do not require a surgical opinion. As such, an assessment by a physiotherapist or a sports physician is very often the most appropriate starting point. All of our practitioners have postgraduate qualifications that allow best practice assessment and management of your shoulder complaint. On our team page, you can review what our practitioners offer.

All doctors at Sydney Shoulder Clinic are actively involved in teaching at both under-graduate and post-graduate levels. Most of the Sydney Shoulder Clinic surgeons have appointments at major teaching hospitals in Sydney.

If you are uncertain as to who you should consult initially, then please phone Tim Neville Physiotherapist,
on 9744 2201 to discuss your assessment options.
