Country Patients

We welcome country patients, and understand some of the difficulties that may arise for your surgery when you are away from home. We understand the challenges of travel, and are happy to discuss your condition over the phone prior to any appointment. We can also review your scans prior to any appointment, and we can help you with your decision making.

Should surgery be required, we will do our utmost to minimise any inconvenience. Often pre-operative testing can be done locally. For South Coast patients, all your follow-up can be done in the Wollongong Rooms.

We are also happy to help with any accommodation needs for family members.

For routine hip and knee replacements, most of the routine follow-up after 6 weeks can be done over the phone.
