Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Should I go to the hospital if I have a suspected fracture/broken bone?

As our public hospitals, including our local Gold Coast University Hospital, experience increased demand in their A&E department, and are stretched to their limits during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, the Private Fracture Clinic is offering patients an alternative to the busy emergency departments. This will also help lighten the load on our public health system during this trying time.

Our Professional Services

Welcome to the Private Fracture Clinic where we provide specialised, friendly and efficient, follow-up care for people with limb injuries, fractures and broken bones.

Patients are seen by doctors with special interests in fractures and trauma or orthopaedic surgeons.  They are supported by skilled plaster technicians, Nurse Practitioners and pleasant administration staff.  We recognise that your time is valuable, so we provide a quick, convenient and pleasant medical service. We also have free and easy on site parking. 

Most injuries would have been initially treated by an emergency care doctor or GP at the time of injury. We provide follow up care to assist your injuries to heal as quickly and comfortably as possible, with minimal disruption to your function and busy schedule.

Our medical doctors will assess your injury and can request and provide immediate x rays, CT scans and ultrasound scans on site. We discuss your injury and provide treatment options including waterproof casts and removable splints by experienced technicians. We can also provide referrals for surgery if required to your preferred surgeon. We continue your treatment and follow up throughout your healing and rehabilitation.

Waterproof Braces

Revolutionary bracing technology for the best possible fit, comfort and stablisation.  The material light-weight, waterproof and easily cleaned.
