What should I bring with me when I come for an appointment?

When you come for your appointment Remember to bring the following:

  • Your referral letter from your GP
  • Copies of imaging you may have had prepared at the request of your referrer
  • If you have seen a physiotherapist, please bring a progress letter from the physio
  • If you require revision surgery, please bring a copy of your initial surgery report
  • Your medicare card
  • Your private healthcare insurance card

What happens if I need additional imaging?

During your initial consultation with Dr Jonathan Herald, additional Xray, MRI and CT scan imaging may be necessary. Dr Jonathan Herald can write you a referral letter for additional imaging. Please ask at the time of your image referral letter for an image centre which is located near you.

Will physiotherapy be required after surgery?

Having surgery is a serious matter. The more invasive the surgical procedure, the more care that is needed to recover post-operatively. Dr Jonathan Herald will choose the least invasive surgical procudure suited to your condition to optimise your result and to minimise your recovery period. It is important that you understand what procedure you are having, how to prepare for surgery and what recovery program you need to follow. Physiotherapy is an essential part of this education, preparation and recovery process. Physiotherapy will help you obtain a better surgical outcome.
