Anyone know a good orthopaedic wrist specialist?
2:53:38 PM
Hi all,

Took a bad fall in the Grampians around 11 weeks ago - lots of pain, but no answers until I recently consulted with the brilliant Julian Saunders and got an MRI done. He has diagnosed an acute undisplaced fracture in the hook of the hamate with a 1mm fracture separation. Definitely no climbin :-(

So...I need to see a orthopaedic wrist specialist/surgeon to move this forward asap (cast? Surgery?) given it's been 11 weeks already and the fracture is still visible. I can get in to see Jason at Olympic Park Sports Medicine, but not till 19th January, and I'm hoping to get in to see someone sooner (even if I have to meet them at their Xmas BBQ for 10 mins, with films in hand...).

Does anyone have any wrist specialist contacts in the Melbourne area that would be able to fit me in to their schedule over this busy period??

Sorry to hear of your discomfort.

If you are in Melbourne, but consult with a doctor in Blackheath, then maybe a Newcastle surgeon can help.

Dr Meads saw to my ruptured ulnar collateral ligament of the wrist, when he was at Sydney Hospital some time back.
