Having an operation can be stressful and confusing. There is an abundance of information on the internet not to mention readily available personal anecdotes. Despite this, individual circumstances vary considerably and standard practice varies from region to region.

During your consultation with Dr Chia, he will provide you with information regarding your procedure that is relevant to your individual needs. For common procedures, he will also provide you with a brochure published by the Australian Orthopaedic Association (not available online due to copyright restrictions).

If you still have questions after your consultation, he will be very happy to discuss these further until you have a clear understanding of your upcoming surgery.
