Around Adelaide

Adelaide Orthopaedic & Trauma Specialists would like to acknowledge our sponsors for the recent Marathon Showcase which saw Drs Liew and Fassina raise just under $10,000 for Arthritis SA. All 4 runners pictured completed the full Marathon distance of 42.2Km and were still able to pose for a photo at the end. Great support from Arthritis SA, family and friends.

Adelaide Orthopaedics runs for charity

Dr Chien-Wen Liew and Dr Robert Fassina, along with other associates are saying that enough is enough. They acknowledge that everyone is busy, and in today’s landscape, exercise is important in injury prevention and quality of life. In their jobs as Orthopaedic Surgeons in Adelaide, South Australia, Dr Liew and Dr Fassina will be running their first standalone marathon to support a cause close to their hearts and jobs – Arthritis. We will be welcoming runners to participate with us.

To support the cause, please visit their GOFUNDRAISE page or the Facebook page for more information.
