Hip and Knee Orthopaedic Surgeon

Hello, I’m Dr James Rohrsheim. I am an Australian trained, Sydney based, Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in the treatment of diseases and injuries to hips and knees.

My practice is located at the state of the art medical facilities at Norwest Private Hospital in Bella Vista in Sydney’s Hills area and at Chatswood on the Lower North Shore in close proximity to the North Shore Private Hospital. For exact locations of my rooms please click here.

I operate at both of these hospitals.

I also regularly provide orthopaedic services to patients in Grafton and surrounding communities as a Visiting Medical Officer at Grafton Base Hospital.

I have a passion for treating patients with hip or knee conditions because I know that the treatments I offer will almost always greatly enhance a patient’s quality of life.

I use the word treatment and not surgery because surgery is just one form of treatment available. 

I know that, in many instances, patients respond favourably to conservative, non-interventional treatments which may avoid the need for surgery or at the very least postpone the requirement for surgery until a later date.  This can be a very important consideration particularly when looking at hip replacement surgery or knee replacement surgery.

My philosophy is simple – “Patients first” by providing them with informed options from which we can work together to deliver the most appropriate treatment, at the time, for the individual patient’s needs.

Should surgery be found to be the most appropriate treatment my areas of particular
expertise are:
