Dr Michael Tong has over 18 years of experience as an orthopaedic surgeon on the Gold Coast. He performs a number of different surgeries, but has a special interest in knee and hip replacement surgery, along with knee arthroscope and ACL reconstruction. He uses computer navigation in joint replacement and also performs robotic joint replacement surgery.
The Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry can provide individual surgeon results compared to the national average. Dr Tong is very proud of his results and would be happy to discuss this data at the time of consultation. This is extremely relevant as most first joint replacements will be better than subsequent revision replacement surgery. This is why it is so important to get it right the first time.
Sports and Orthopaedic Physiotherapy is now available in Dr Tong's rooms. The ability to provide physiotherapy services within Dr Tong's rooms means patients can often coordinate seeing Dr Tong and the Physiotherapist in the one visit. As well as being convenient, by liaising with Dr Tong, any concerns of the patient not dealt with by physiotherapy during treatment can quickly be discussed / reviewed by Dr Tong.
