Frequently Asked Questions

Is My Condition Serious Enough For A Visit To A Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon?

When specific conditions become more chronic and persistent, the treatment options may be beyond your GP’s expertise. If you experience severe pain, or if your pain is affecting your quality of life such that you cannot perform everyday activities normally (e.g. walking, standing or wearing clothes), visiting an Orthopaedic Surgeon for a detailed assessment and diagnosis is the best course of action.

What Can I Expect At My First Visit With An Orthopaedic Surgeon?

At your first appointment with Dr. Bryan, he will evaluate your medical history and the pain you are experiencing.

Depending on the symptoms you have, he will likely perform some form of diagnostic imaging (e.g. X-Rays or MRI scans) to assess your condition accurately. X-rays and CT scans are useful to rule out bony problems, whilst an MRI scan is excellent at looking at soft tissue (e.g. tendons, ligaments, cartilage) problems.

After assessing your condition, Dr. Bryan will recommend a personalised treatment plan according to your specific needs. This may include surgical or non-surgical treatment options.

Can I Continue My Sporting Activities If I Am Experiencing Pain (e.g. Shoulder, Knee or Hip Pain)?

Dr. Bryan always advises patients to listen to their bodies and not push through the pain barrier, especially if your pain is a direct result of sports injuries.

If your pain does not subside with RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) and over-the-counter painkillers, it is highly advisable that you seek professional medical advice. Continuing with sporting activities will place additional strain on your body and worsen the condition.
