Patient Info

What to bring to the appointment:

  • Your medicare card

  • Workers compensation details
  • All relevant x-rays and medical reports

Do I need a doctor’s referral to make an appointment?

Referrals from your GP or medical specialist will allow you to claim the medicare rebate for the consultation.

You can make an appointment with a referral from other allied health professionals (e.g Physiotherapist) however, you will not be able to claim the medicare rebate.

If you have any questions, please contact the team at Victorian Orthopaedic Group.


Payment is required at time of consultation. Part of the consultation fee can be claimed through medicare as long as you have a valid referral. A detailed itemised quote will be provided to you at the time of your surgery booking.
A discounted rate will apply for pensioners.
Cash / Visa / Mastercard / AMEX accepted.
