Newcastle has finally opened a new orthopedics clinic for adults with low mobility, after years of waiting.
Dr Paul Smith, director of orthopedists at Newcastle’s Newcastle Hospital, said: “I think it’s fantastic to see a new facility in Newcastle which is both large and functional.”
The Newcastle Orthopaedic Clinic has an opportunity to offer patients the best care possible, and to do so at an affordable cost.
“It’s an important area of our city and it is something that we’re excited to see in the future.”
The Newcastle orthopaedics clinic opened its doors in December last year.
“We are delighted to have this facility open, which is a huge step forward for our community,” said Dr Smith.
“In the past, there was a very small number of patients who could access orthopod care, so we’ve now added this to that list.”
The clinic has three rooms for patients to receive orthopoietic and physiotherapy, and is accessible from both the Royal Newcastle Hospital and St George’s hospital.
“For patients who can’t get into the Newcastle Orthodics Clinic, we can provide a private suite for the orthopist, a chiropractor and physiotherapist,” he said.
“They will also have access to the Royal Childrens Hospital, and there will be other services available to them.”
The orthoposists at the clinic will also be able to provide patients with the latest orthopotential therapy, which includes spinal manipulation, and will provide further treatment to patients with low spinal mobility.
Dr Smith said that the clinic would open on November 30 and will be available for patients from January 1, 2019.
“There’s a lot of work to do to get the facilities in place,” he explained.
“With a new, bigger facility, we’ll be able take more patients.”
But we will have the ability to offer more treatments for patients as well.
“Auckland orthopathic clinic closesThe Auckland orthopathsics clinic in the city of Auckland has closed, with the building undergoing a major refurbishment.
Auckland’s orthopatheist Dr Paul Smith said the new facility was a welcome addition to the Auckland area.”
Auckland is a beautiful place, and the Auckland orthopedist community has been extremely supportive of the Newcastle clinic, so it was important that the building was refurbished in the right way,” he told RTE.”
I’m delighted to see the new building now open, and hopefully we’ll see more patients coming through for services and to meet our patients.
“The Auckland facility is one of two orthopastasists clinics in the country.
Dr James Molloy, chief orthopists at Auckland’s King’s College Hospital, also welcomed the closure.”
Clinics like the Newcastle one are important for patients with disabilities,” he says.”
More importantly they provide important support to other patients with physical disabilities who are also in the community.
“A number of orthopotherapists are working in the Auckland facility to provide care for patients.
The Auckland clinic opened in 2015, but it was only last month that a second clinic opened.
Dr Molloys said he was proud of the work being done by the Auckland clinic.”
To open up a second Auckland orthopy clinic was a big step forward in Auckland,” he commented.”
This is a fantastic addition to our community.
