The information surrounding COVID-19 is changing daily, but our commitment to serving you won't.
The practice of Momentum Orthopaedics is currently open. We will be offering face-to-face consultations as well as teleconferencing. Please check this website for updates in this rapidly evolving situation.
Elective orthopaedic surgery at Insight Private Hospital is currently at full capacity. The Victorian Government had "paused" all "non-urgent" elective orthopaedic surgery at Albury Hospital from August 24. A recommencement date will likely be announced very soon. Enquiries / concerns should be made to the Elective Surgery Access Unit Manager on (02) 6058 4625 or your local member of parliament.
Local emergency departments are aiming to reduce patient numbers. Dr Kolt is available to manage emergency conditions including fracture management. Emergency referrals can be made by phone call directly to Dr. Kolt
Momentum Orthopaedics assures safe consultations, while respecting current rules for social distancing.
With current restrictions, we are re-arranging our consultation schedule to host as many consultations as possible by tele-health. These consultations will be bulk-billed under the current health department provision.
Our practice assistant will be calling all patients who have pending appointments, to make plans for tele-health consultation.
Alternative arrangements will be made for consultations which cannot be conducted remotely.
Momentum Orthopaedics can facilitate remote consultations via apps such as Skype or Facetime.
If you have not used Skype before, please click here to get started.
Our practice assistant may ask you for your "Skype Name". Our clinic will require this to be able to contact you.
Please contact our office for further information.
