Welcome to Glenelg Orthopaedics
Glenelg Orthopaedics is owned and operated by Dr Gavin Nimon. Dr Nimon is an Adelaide based orthopaedic surgeon with over 21 years’ experience in shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and knee surgery.
Dr Nimon specialises in totally arthroscopic reconstructive and stabilization procedures to the shoulder including Rotator Cuff repairs, SLAP repairs, treatment of bursitis and AC joint arthritis.
We aim to provide quality orthopaedic care for Adelaide residents, performing an individualised assessment for each and every patient.
Hand, Wrist & Elbow Surgery
Your hands, wrists and elbows are in near-constant use. Dr Nimon routinely performs surgeries for a range of hand and wrist conditions, including carpal tunnel, trigger finger or thumb and arthritis. He also performs surgery for tennis and golfer’s elbow if it is deemed necessary.
Your knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in your body, comprising bones, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. It bears your weight when you stand and absorbs shock when you step down.
Your knee is vulnerable to injury and can be prone to developing a number of ongoing conditions that limit your movements.
As an Adelaide orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Nimon is experienced in all facets of knee surgery, including knee replacements and arthroscopy. The most common conditions treated with knee surgery include arthritis, sports injuries and trauma from various causes including falls.

I’ve started a podcast series dedicated to providing medical updates in a pragmatic way. Each episode I interview a different specialist in regards to their area of expertise.
