Melbourne Hand Surgery 

Coronavirus update: All suitable consultations at Melbourne Hand Surgery are currently conducted via telehealth (phone or video consultation) to maximise patient and staff safety. We have implemented enhanced hygiene meaures in our rooms including acrylic screens, masks, hand sanitiser, face shields and physical distancing-related changes. 

We are continuing to perform rooms procedures, including needle fasciotomies for Dupuytren's contracture. There are  currently restrictions on performing elective surgery in Victorian hospitals, as private hospitals are accommodating aged care residents as well as providing nursing staff for aged care residences. We are currently taking bookings for and scheduling emergency and category 1 surgeries at The Avenue and Epworth Freemasons. We are taking bookings for category 2 and 3 surgeries from 21 September, or as soon as the pandemic situation permits. Please note that all patients who are scheduled for elective surgery admission are required to undertake a COVID test and obtain a negative ("not infected") result prior to admission. 

Victorians are in this together and together we will get through this. Thank you for your understanding as our community works through these unprecedented times together (last updated: 3 August 2020).
