He also specialises in a new technique to Ireland which is a minimally invasive anterior approach to hip replacement.
Mr Mark Quinn said, “I’m delighted to offer those suffering from hip and knee pain a solution in the local area. For years the Midlands has been underserved when it comes to specialist medical care and with the Charter Medical Hospital in Mullingar now offering increased services, it means that patients have the option to be treated locally. I’m delighted to be able to offer hip and knee care to patients in the midlands.
“I trained in new and innovative techniques for hip and knee surgery in Australia. These techniques typically reduce recovery time, leave patients with increased mobility and often result in less pain during recovery.”
Kathriona Screeney, CEO of the Charter Medical Hospital said, “We’re delighted to have Mark join the Charter Medical team. There is a big demand in the region for orthopaedic services and to have a surgeon of Mark’s calibre on the team is a great opportunity for the people of the midlands.”
