Elective Surgery is back
Melbourne Hip and Knee surgeon Andrew Chia is thrilled elective surgery has recommenced.
We have rescheduled most patients who missed out on elective surgery during the lockdowns. It’s been a tough couple of years for patients waiting for elective surgery. We hope elective surgeries continue as this is a sign our public system is coping.
Andrew continues to see patients with hip and knee concerns. We are thrilled that we can offer surgery dates within 4-6 weeks for joint replacement. As well as arthroscopies of the hip and knee within 2-3 weeks. Also, we are able to accommodate urgent arthroscopies sooner.
Most hospitals are now back at 100% allocation of theatre time to elective surgeries. The theatre teams at The Bays Hospital, Epworth Freemasons, Epworth Richmond and St Vincent’s private who all work closely with Andrew have been so supportive of our practice and more importantly our patients.
