Knee and Hip Specialist in Melbourne’s South-East
Knox Orthopaedic Group (KOG) is based in Wantirna in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne and is located approximately 35 minutes from the CBD. The KOG team of orthopaedic surgeons have extensive experience in both acute and chronic orthopaedic problems including:
- Hip and knee joint replacement (including minimally invasive hip replacement)
- Arthroscopic surgery of the knee
- ACL reconstruction (including LARS synthetic ligament reconstruction)
- Hip arthroscopy for the treatment of hip pain, particularly in the young adult
- Acute sports injuries including treatment of fractures
- Periacetabular osteotomy for the treatment of hip dysplasia
- Foot and ankle surgery for trauma and degenerative conditions
Emphasising guidance and care throughout all knee and hip procedures
The surgeons at KOG aim to provide excellence in patient care to ensure the best possible outcome for all patients, regardless of whether you are with us for a hip replacement or visiting a knee specialist at our practice in Melbourne.
For patients requiring a surgical procedure, the experienced office staff at KOG will guide them through the process providing comprehensive information about the operation. This will include out of pocket costs and information about hospital admission.
As it is a very important decision to undergo surgery, patients will be given time to discuss any concerns or raise any questions with their knee and hip specialist at the consultation and with the office staff at the time of booking surgery. Patients are not hurried or pressured to make a decision. If more time is required, patients are encouraged to discuss this further with friends or family and return for a further consultation before booking their operation.
WorkSafe or TAC patients are required to settle consultation accounts at the time of consultation. If surgery is required, the treating surgeon will write a letter to the relevant authority to obtain acceptance of liability. This process sometimes takes several weeks.
Where to find your hip and knee specialist
Our team of orthopaedic surgeons have moved into our original consulting rooms which has been newly renovated to accommodate our patients. We can be found at 262 Mountain Highway in Wantirna, adjacent to Knox Private Hospital.
Our practice has direct access to the hospital, giving our patients the flexibility of visiting a knee or hip specialist with x-ray and pathology facilities onsite.
