Melbourne Hand Surgery

Face masks remain mandatory when you attend our practice in person. Videoconsultations are conducted via telehealth at our dedicated virtual clinic to maximise patient and staff safety. We are experiencing extremely high demand for appointments so require that all patients provide a referral prior to booking an appointment so that we can identify and manage urgent and emergency conditions in a timely manner, and so that our surgeons can assess your suitability for a telehealth appointment and identify any further information or tests that might be required before your consultation. If our surgeons assess that your condition (especially recent injuries) is best managed with hand therapy rather than surgery we may recommend that you see a qualified hand therapist (physiotherapist or occupational therapist) rather than schedule an appointment with our surgeons.    If you are eligible to get vaccinated and/or boosted, please do so. Our next available non-urgent appointments are around eight months away; our offices will close on Friday 16 December 2022 and will reopen on Monday 9 January 2023.
