Clearly the result was excellent and post operative recovery quick. The care given to preventing clotting - clexane and compression stockings.
Could be improved: It would be an improvement if surgeons could more detailed descriptions of exactly what has been done during the operation.
The onus seems to be on the patient to research independently and apply generalised information to his or her particular case.

Since engaging with Dirk 3 years ago I have always found him professional, approachable and with time to explain and answer my many questions. Thanks to Dirk's experience and skill my recovery has been much easier and less painful than I expected. The team at Epworth Richmond were fabulous.

The surgery was a success thanks to Dr Dirk Van Bavel to whom I know have a whole new life ahead of me without the pain and frustration of not being able to do anything physical. Surgery was at Epworth in Richmond and the nursing and physio staff are second to none I can't thank everyone enough.

Questions solved

%{Count} solved patients' doubts in Doctoralia


  • Question about Knee arthroscopy

    Whats the best solution with an unstable patella? MRI says: Patellofemoral OA. The medial femorotibial joint is abnormal with chondral attenuation. Reactive oedema is present in the medial tibia with intraosseous cyst formation.The medial meniscus is truncated. Physio says not to op but to expect improvement in 6-8wk.

    There are 2 separate problems here that need to be addressed. The first is an unstable patella. Initially this should be treated with physiotherapy to strengthen the quadriceps and VMO. If this fails you would consider surgery.The treatment for this depends on the pathology causing the instability. Surgical options include, ; MPFL reconstruction, tibial tubercle distillation/ medicalisation and trochleoplasty.
    The treatment for Patellofemoral OA is analgesics and physiotherapy. If this fails you could consider a patellofemoral replacement.

    Dr. Dirk van Bavel

  • Question about Total hip replacement

    How long does it take to fully recover from hip replacement? I am 79 and in good health.

    Your recovery after a hip replacement depends on how active and healthy you are. I try to get my patients up walking on the day of their surgery and home within a few days. While you use crutches for the first couple of weeks as soon as you can walk without them the better. The more active you are the quicker your muscles recover.The Australian standards say you shouldn't be driving for 6 weeks after a hip replacement no matter which leg you have operated on, if you drive an automatic or manual car.
