It is very important that an acute injury to the knee, such as from sport, is expertly assessed and treated as early as possible. This ensures no further damage is done and allows appropriate investigations to be ordered, whether this is an X-Ray, Ultrasound or MRI. Once the correct diagnosis is made, the appropriate treatment can be instigated whether this is surgical or non surgical.
I keep several appointments free on Mondays and Thursdays to see patients with acute knee injuries. Call my staff on 02 6550 0705 but be sure to tell them it is an acute knee injury.
You do not need a referral from a General Practitioner for the consultation but a referral will allow most of the cost to be claimed through Medicare.
