Access to Orthopaedics SA
You may request a referral to Orthopaedics SA from your GP or from the Emergency department. On arrival, you will need to provide information regarding any medical conditions you have, allergies, and current medications.
The doctor will assess your fracture and discuss the course of action, likely outcome, and recovery process. For most simple fractures, the team can fit a cast or splint at the appointment.
If surgery is required, the doctor will explain the procedure needed and the options available to you as the patient. If you do not have private health insurance, you may opt to be referred to the public hospital. The choice remains yours.
