Coronavirus (COVID19) is a concern for us all. Here at Geelong Orthopaedics we are still working and caring for patients. We are happy to receive referrals.
At the moment elective surgery is at 100% of capacity and we are working hard! Currently a negative covid test is required pre operatively. Currently the Anaesthetic advice is to wait 8w post Covid infection before undertaking non urgent major elective surgery.
We urge the Geelong community to follow health advice. Please get vaccinated and boosted, wash your hands, and wear a mask . If you are sick get tested and isolate until you know your result. Infection control; it is up to us.
The most up to date information can be found here at department of human services: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus . Stay healthy everyone and wash your hands, and get vaccinated! Only together can we keep winning!
