Melbourne Hand Surgery 

Coronavirus update: All consultations at Melbourne Hand Surgery are now conducted via telehealth (phone or video consultation), except where we have previously confirmed the requirement for an in-person physical examination or wound care management.  Mr Babazadeh is accepting referrals; Dr Tomlinson is not accepting urgent referrals and is on sabbatical leave. 

Emergency and urgent surgery is currently being conducted in hospitals. We anticipate a return to full elective surgery services from 31 July, in line with Victorian Government directives on the staged recommencement of elective surgery. Out of an abundance of caution we will apply the same approach to the recommencement of elective rooms procedures. 

Our practice will be closed on Fridays until further notice. We will use this website banner to provide general updates on changes to our practice and the availability of non-urgent procedures and surgery in the weeks and months ahead. Thank you for your understanding as our community works through these unprecedented and rapidly evolving times together (last updated: 20 May 2020).
