Dr Lachlan Host
I have a special interest in joint replacement surgery for the knee and hip, knee reconstruction and arthroscopic knee surgery, and fracture management. In particular I have an interest in computer navigation, pressure balancing and robotic-assisted joint replacement surgeries. Technology has come a long way and is showing great promise in orthopaedic surgery to help us improve patient outcomes. 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.
Having fallen in love with the Central Tablelands during my training, my family and I now live in Bathurst, and offer services in both Bathurst, Lithgow, Upper Blue Mountanis and Mudgee. 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. With my local colleagues, I look forward to offering a first class, comprehensive orthopaedic service for Bathurst, Lithgow and surrounds.
