Dr Lachlan Host
I have a special interest in joint replacement surgery for the knee and hip, arthroscopic knee surgery, and fracture management. Joint replacement surgery is my passion, and I am pleased to provide the latest in anterior minimally-invasive surgeries (AMIS) for hip replacement, as well as kinematically aligned and patient-specific instrumented (PSI) knee replacements. Technology has come a long way and is showing great promise in orthopaedic surgery to help us improve patient outcomes overall, as well as reaching milestones in recovery more quickly. Those living in a regional area can now access the latest technology to help manage their problems locally, without the need to travel too far from home.
I live locally in the Central West with my wife and 4 children, and offer services in Bathurst, Lithgow, Blue Mountains and Mudgee areas. My wife and family are well and truly settled in Bathurst, and I am proud to call it home. I have been blessed with mentors who are counted in the top surgeons working in NSW and QLD, not to mention the experience gained both in military service and my fellowship in Edinburgh. I aim to provide expert care and the latest in technologies for hip and knee replacements in a rural location for rural residents – I am one myself, and we should be able to access exactly the same level of care locally that our city cousins enjoy! Come and see the team and we can discuss the best option to restore you the quality of life you desire.
