CONSULTATION

If you need the advice of Mr Hurworth for treatment or diagnosis of a condition you’re experiencing, please call his rooms to make an appointment. You will need a referral from a General Practitioner or a Sports Physician.

If you have had any recent x-rays taken, please also bring these to your appointment.

Consultations with Mr Hurworth generally take twenty minutes depending on type of surgery and your injury.

Mr Hurworth is available to see any patients including those on workers compensation claims and MVIT patients.

  • OBESITY AND HOW IT AFFECTS SURGERY

    The knee in particular does not take kindly to excess weight. The literature seems pretty clear that weight causes more rapid onset of degeneration in the knee, particularly in females. Equally disturbing is that the literature is clear that especially above BMI 40, risks of surgery increase significantly, especially infection, wound problems and DVT.

    I hope this video helps:

  • FOR PATIENTS WITHOUT PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE

    If you do not have private insurance, I am happy to see you in my private rooms. I operate regularly at Armadale Hospital through the public system.
