Our new Injury Clinic is designed to accommodate patients with an acute injury that will most likely require ongoing allied health treatment rather than surgery.
It allows expert opinion from our orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon as well as the opportunity to commence offloading and formulate a rehabilitation program with our podiatrist which can then be followed up by your local allied health provider.
Alternating Mondays and Wednesdays at our East Melbourne Clinic.
At our injury clinic you will see two practitioners: Mr Daniel Goldbloom, orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon, and Erin Smith, clinical podiatrist. Common conditions seen at our injury clinic include acute lateral ligament injuries, base of 5th metatarsal fractures, stress fractures, fractures of the anterior calcaneal process or tip of the fibula and heel pain.
These conditions are all verified case by case for suitability for our injury clinic.
Mr Goldbloom and Miss Smith will review your imaging, examine the site of your injury and create a management plan. In cases where it is realised that surgery is required, this will be arranged during the appointment.
The cost of your consultation is partly rebatable with a referral form your doctor where an additional rebate may be available through your private health fund.
