No Out of Pocket Expenses

This new program has been launched in conjunction with Australia’s three major health funds, making joint replacement surgery more accessible to a large portion of Sydney and the Greater NSW community.

We have 13 orthopaedic specialists currently participating, who are supported by a dedicated team of onsite Physiotherapists, Anaesthetists and Clinical Nurse Specialists.

Redefining how healthcare is delivered

This is a surgeon-led program, whereby patients deemed clinically appropriate to participate in this Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program, will follow a patient pathway which involves;

  • Participation in a personalised pre-habilitation program through our onsite Joint Education Clinic
  • Early mobilisation post-surgery with support from onsite physiotherapy and nursing staff
  • A short hospital stay of between 1 to 3 days
  • Supported home recovery package with rehabilitation in the home, should their treating surgeon deem it necessary

The patient’s clinical pathway is adjusted according to their specific requirements, and the length of stay is as deemed appropriate by the surgeon, in line with the patient’s readiness for discharge.

To refer patients to the orthopaedic short-stay program, contact our team on 1800 1 ORTHO (1800 167 846) who will facilitate this or contact the specialists’ practice directly.
