Since 2004, our surgeons have consulted in Darwin, offering world-leading and outstanding quality of care and a commitment to providing excellence in sports medicine, orthopaedic surgery and related services to patients.
As well as the specific surgical expertise that SPORTSMED·SA brings to the Northern Territory there are a number of challenges in providing visiting orthopaedic services to a community.
SPORTSMED·SA has established safe and reliable practices and protocols for patient selection, hospital patient management, post-op rehabilitation and the management of any post-opcomplications.
Our 24-hour-a-day answering service provides the ability to contact the treating or on-call surgeon for any post-operative issues, while we have a well established network of healthcare providers who can assist if problems aren’t able to wait until the next surgeon visit.
SPORTSMED·SA Orthopaedic Surgeons specialise in the assessment, diagnosis treatment and recovery of orthopaedic, sporting, musculoskeletal and arthritis conditions for upper and lower limbs.
Our surgeons currently visit the Darwin branch on a fortnightly basis and currently consult at Parap from the rooms of Territory Sportsmedicine, while operating at Darwin Private Hospital. Territory Sportsmedicine is one of Darwin’s leading clinics of health professionals including doctors and physiotherapists dedicated to the prevention, treatment and management of medical issues that affect sporting and daily life activities.
The relationship and proximity of the two Clinics has provided great efficiency and convenience for Territory patients over the years, but as soon as possible, patients are discharged back to the care of their general practitioner.
SPORTSMED·SA’s presence in the Northern Territory extends to a number of other medical services, allied health and general practitioner clinics, where some of our surgeons provide further assistance and advice.
Major surgery including joint replacements may need to be undertaken at our specialist, private orthopaedic hospital in Stepney, Adelaide.
