Mater Private Hospital Brisbane leads the way

In July 2001, Australia's first artificial cervical (neck) disk replacement was successfully performed by a surgical team at Mater Private Hospital Brisbane.

Two years later in 2003, Mater Private Hospital Brisbane commissioned its ninth operating theatre. The theatre, which was the only one of its kind in Australia, was equipped with video technology that allowed surgeons to watch operations performed by visiting international specialists. It also enabled teleconference links to any teleconferencing venue in the world.

In 2004, Mater Private Rehabilitation Unit was opened in the Potter Building, expanding the service with a further 48 beds.
