Cairns Orthopaedic Specialist operate on a regular basis at the following fully accredited facilities.
Cairns Private Hospital and Cairns Day Surgery benefit from being part of Ramsay Health Care Group, Ramsay Health Care is one of the largest and most respected private hospital operators in the country.
The Cairns Private Hospital is used for day, overnight and longer stay patients, for surgeries ranging in complexity. Cairns Orthopaedic Clinic surgeons, Dr Morrey, Dr Pozzi & Dr Parkinson, have multiple weekly sessions.
For major surgery and those patients with co-morbidities, Cairns Orthopaedic Clinic patients participate in the Cairns Private Hospital's Pre-Admission Clinic. If appointments with other medical specialists are considered necessary, these are arranged. If required blood tests, swab tests and ECG's are also arranged.
Cairns Day Surgery is used for day cases only and for patients who do not require consideration of co-morbidities.
All day case patients must have a responsible adult to collect him or her from the facility and stay with them overnight. This relates to their having had a general anaesthetic.
Our surgeons also offer consulting and operating services in the Public Sector at the Cairns Hospital, which is a Queensland Health facility. Due to the public services given, both surgeons are offered the right to provide private surgical services at the Cairns Hospital, but it must be stressed that there are very few sessions available to them (less than 6) in any one calendar year, and these are subject to cancellation. As with the other facilities, day, overnight and long stay patients are treated, the range of services unchanged.
Use of this facility is upon referral by our surgeons.
