Coastal Orthopaedic Group

Coastal Orthopaedic Group is an integrated practice where physiotherapists and orthopaedic surgeons work closely together to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Coastal Orthopaedics (COG) was formed in 2009 by a group of Perth orthopaedic surgeons seeking to provide their patients with the highest level of care using a holistic and integrated model. We have set out to achieve this by forging strong relationships with Bethesda Hospital and Body Logic Physiotherapy to ensure our patients have the security of knowing they have continuity and consistency on their healing journey.
