Our Story

Spine Ortho Clinic was founded in 2013 by Dr. John Choi, orthopaedic spine surgeon in Mornington Peninsula. Since then the clinic has steadily grown to establish itself as a premier orthopaedic and spine care centre with a strong focus on innovation and excellence in care and now attracts patients from all over Melbourne and beyond.

Spine Ortho Clinic prides itself as leaders in modern spinal care in Australia and beyond. Nowadays, the treatment options are rapidly changing and modern technology is significantly affecting care pathways. These medical advances can be overwhelming for patients and occasionally the hype of a novel treatment or over-promised treatment methods can be potentially dangerous and here at our clinic, our surgeons will explain and formulate an individualised management plan that navigates these issues for you.

Our Mission

We aim to provide our communities with high quality, compassionate, and affordable musculoskeletal care that is grounded in evidence based medicine. We will offer wide breadth of treatment options individualised for maximal benefit with minimal harm to our patients using the most efficacious techniques.

Our Values

Our core values are Trust, Compassion, Innovation, Excellence, Respect, Integrity and Fairness. These are the ideals that medical professionals swore under the Hippocratic Oath. We strive to providing open and honest opinion and care plans to our patients.
