For Patients

“When faced with an injury or disease, making decisions about your treatment can be overwhelming. Our aim is to make it as smooth as possible, and our friendly staff and Surgeons will guide you each step of the way.”

  • Making an Appointment

    To make an appointment, simply call our Clinic and speak to one of our medical receptionists. Depending on your condition, your GP may refer you to see a specific Surgeon who specialises in treating your condition or alternatively, you may choose which Surgeon you would like to see. For a list of our Surgeons and who specialises in which joints.

    Make An Appointment
  • What To Expect

    Firstly you will see your Surgeon for an initial consultation. This appointment may go for approximately 15 – 20 minutes depending on the complexity of your condition. In this consultation, your Surgeon will diagnose your condition and then present you with various different treatment options to choose from.

    If your chosen treatment option involves surgery, your Surgeon will provide you with everything you need to know about the procedure, what to expect, fees and payments and information on hospital admissions.

  • Fees and Billing

    Our Clinic is guided by industry standard fees and charges and so each of our Surgeons typically charge a consultation and surgical fee. A portion of these fees may not be covered by Medicare or your private health fund so it is important to understand that there will be a gap.

    It is important to also note that these fees do not include any hospital charges, so check your level of hospital cover with your private health insurer to fully understand what you will be charged.

    At the end of your consultation you will be billed. We really appreciate same day settlement of your account so please go straight to the desk to settle your bill with one of our friendly staff.

  • Your Recovery

    Each patient is different and unfortunately there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ template in terms of recovery times!

    Typically, post surgery you may spend a couple of days in hospital under the care of your Surgeon. Then upon discharge, your Surgeon will advise you how long to expect before you make a full recovery. This could range from a few days up until six weeks and will vary from person to person based on their physical and mental health prior to their operation.

  • Hospital Information
