Our Team Approach to Osseointegration for Amputees

Our Team Approach to Osseointegration is based on the collaborative input of our multidisciplinary team members. We have established a comprehensive screening procedure, rehabilitation protocols and patient care guidelines to ensure that patients continue to receive the required clinical support and long-term follow-up. Our team is composed of specialised clinicians and technicians including orthopaedic surgeons, amputee clinical psychologists, pain specialists, preoperative physicians, rehabilitation physicians, physiotherapists, prosthetists, clinical nurse consultants, biomedical engineers and clinical researchers.

Professor Munjed Al Muderis

Professor Munjed Al Muderis is an orthopedic surgeon and discipline lead of the Limb Reconstruction Centre at MQ Health in Sydney. He is a clinical lecturer at Macquarie University and The Australian School Of Advanced Medicine. He specialises in hip, knee, trauma and osseointegration surgery. He is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and Chairman of our group.

Prof. Al Muderis graduated from Baghdad College High School (The American Jesuit) in 1991. He studied medicine at Baghdad University from 1991 to 1997. As a first-year resident, Prof. Al Muderis was forced to flee Iraq as he refused Saddam’s regime brutal orders to surgically remove the ears of soldiers who had escaped from the army. He ended up on a flimsy wooden boat heading to his new home, Australia.

Prof. Al Muderis founded the OGA in 2010 and since then it has grown to be the largest osseointegration centre in the world. The OGA has performed over 600 surgeries and our collaborators around the globe have contributed, making figures close to 800. Prof. Al Muderis has trained over 20 centres worldwide and frequently visits the United Kingdom, Europe, Canada, USA, The Middle East, Asia and Africa for surgeries. Learn more…
