"Dr Stelmach is the most caring specialist I have ever met and I have seen many in my years. In her care you can expect receiving a sensitive approach to your needs and the brilliance of her as a doctor. I recommend this wonderful doctor to everyone, if only other Docs could be like Dr Stelmach."

"I had a Tummy Tuck two weeks ago that I have wanted for thirty years. I look and feel great I never thought I would have had this a amazing result. Dr Jane and the lovely Steph never make you feel silly for asking lots of questions. I was recommended to Dr Patterson and am very thankful."

Question about Cartilage regeneration - knee"My mother aged 74, is in good general health condition, but she is having knee pain during the last weeks even when sleeping. The x-Ray showed significant osteoarthritis. She is a little overweight. Is she subject to cartilage regeneration? "
With significant osteoarthritis and given her age she would not be a candidate for cartilage regeneration techniques.
The management of osteoarthritis normally starts with some simple analgesics such as panadol or panadol osteo, gentle exercise or physiotherapy and weight loss.
When the pain gets severe she should consider seeing a surgeon for consideration of knee replacement surgery
