Last Updated 12/11/2020

Our clinic is open for consultations and elective surgeries have resumed.

The Covid-19 pandemic has presented many serious challenges to all of us here in Greater Melbourne, Victoria and the whole country. The safety and health of our patients and staff is our priority.

Additional precautions to ensure the safety and health of our patients and staff have been put in place. Equipment and surfaces are wiped down and cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectant throughout the day and at the end of each day.

Attending for your Appointment

Masks are compulsory throughout Melbourne and should be worn when visiting the clinic. Hand sanitiser is available for use on attending the clinic and we ask that you maintain social distancing while here.

Please arrive as close to your appointment time as possible, as there are limits on the number of people we can have in the waiting room at one time.

Telehealth

Face-to-face appointments are available, however, telehealth consultations are also available if you prefer.

Getting in Touch

We are currently experiencing a higher than usual volume of calls.  To ensure we get your message as quickly as possible, we recommend you fill out the contact form on this website or email reception@orthoam.com.au

Future updates

As we are all aware, the situation changes rapidly and if recommendations change, our clinic will react to update its arrangements, with information updates posted here on our website.
