Sports Injury Casulty open each Saturday from April 2011
Comprehensive Medical Diagnosis
LifeCare Prahran Sports Medicine and The Avenue Hospital have joined forces to provide a Sports Injury Casualty from April to September 2011. Supported by:
• Drs. Frank Burke
• Cheryl Bass
• Andrew Rotstein
and their team from Victoria House Medical Imaging, the service will provide prompt, experienced assessment and diagnosis from a Sports Medicine Doctor with comprehensive medical imaging available on site. Sportspeople can simply phone LifeCare Prahran on 9529 8899 or go straight to the centre located on Level 1, 316 Malvern Road Prahran.
Minimal Waiting Times and Cost Effective
Sportspeople can expect to receive prompt attention, unlike at larger casualties where people with sport related injuries are often left waiting. There will be no facility fee charged, meaning that out of pocket expenses are minimised.
Experienced Sports Medicine Doctors
Sports Physician Registrars and Fellows will offer consultation each Saturday from 1pm to 7 pm from late March to September. These Doctors work full time in Sports Medicine Centres and with sporting teams, guaranteeing expertise in sports injuries and understanding your desire to get back on track as soon as possible. Our radiologists are amongst the most experienced in the country and will work to support the Sports Medicine Doctors.
This is a one-stop service working in conjunction with The Avenue Hospital, meaning fast access to appointments with its internationally renowned Orthopaedic Surgeons if needed. Such appointments will be available to you early during the following week as a priority.
When you attend, this cost and time-effective service will provide accurate diagnosis and acute treatment including any imaging, as well as have the opportunity to see leading orthopaedic surgeons if necessary.
