The Fracture Clinic
About the program
The Fracture Clinic offers a community-based service dedicated to treating all patients with a broken bone or limb injury. The service is an efficient and welcoming alternative to the busy hospital fracture clinics. Under the model, patients are seen and treated as quickly as possible and given a range of treatment alternatives such as waterproof casts and removable splints. Patients are seen by practitioners with experience in fractures and trauma, supported by skilled plaster technicians with access to orthopaedic surgeons for specialist opinion if required.
The Fracture Clinic is also conveniently located with on-site Radiology Providers (QLD X-Ray at Greenslopes and South Coast Radiology for Southport), enabling access to state of the art scans, x-ray facilities, and treatment techniques. Most people with an injury can be treated using a plaster, synthetic cast or splint. If surgery is advised, a referral can be made to a recommended surgeon, hospital or a surgeon of your choice.
Allianz Care Australia fully covers the costs associated with treatment from The Fracture Clinic. Radiology is billed separately by the radiology provider and is covered at 85% of the MBS under a member’s policy. As a result, some 'out of pocket' fees may be charged by the radiology provider.
The Fracture Clinic operates from 2 convenient locations:
- Brisbane: 589 Logan Rd, Greenslopes, 4120 (opening hours vary but are typically between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday)
- Gold Coast: Level 1, Spine Centre, 151 Smith Street, Southport
