Bone Bank

About Us

The Hunter New England Bone Bank is a ‘Live Donor’ femoral head bank, licensed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

The primary role of the Bone Bank is to collect, screen, store and distribute donated femoral head bone for transplantation from consenting patients from 10 public and private hospitals within the Hunter New England Local Health District and beyond.

The Bone Bank stores skull flap autografts and sources, stores and supplies musculoskeletal tissue (such as tendons and structural graft) from Tissue Banks across Australia for our Surgeons.​
