Orthopaeadic recommendations for Sydney, Australia?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I had an increasing level of pain in my left knee while skiing in Oz last September/October. It got to the point where I had a constant limp when walking, was having to be quite cautious skiing & the knee wouldn't take much weight. Even walking up stairs it would give way. Diagnosis after x-ray & MRI was a ganglion cyst. It seemed to settle down a bit after a couple of months, but I was in Utah in January & it really interfered with skiing & there is constant mild pain.

 

So - I think I will need to see about some form of treatment, and wanted to know if anyone has experience with any great sports medicine practitioners (in Sydney, Australia) that understand what it takes to keep a skier skiing!

Can you look up the training backgrounds of the orthopods there? The Steadman Clinic in Vail has a training program that draws folks from around the world who come to learn from arguably the best.
