FAQ:

Will I need further imaging prior to my appointment?

Depending on where you had your imaging taken and when, this may be required. Dr Blythe will generally check your referral before your appointment and request this prior to you coming in.

Will I need to get crutches or walking aids prior to my surgery?

Yes, depending on what operation you are having. Dr Blythe’s secretary will make you aware if these are needed. Joondalup Hospital provide these for patients, however if your operation is at St John of God, Mt Lawley, you can obtain these from your local pharmacy.
