For referrers

A patient’s fitness for surgery is often the main predictor of adverse surgical outcomes.

At My Surgical Buddy we offer a streamlined peri-operative clinic pathway to get your high-risk patients prepared for surgery.

Using a holistic approach to peri-operative care has been shown to:

Reduce last minute cancellations due to unmanaged co-morbidities

Reduce short- and long-term complication rates

Reduce hospital length of stay

Reduce rates of emergency readmission to hospital

Increase patient engagement and satisfaction

Our Services

  • Consultations with our peri-operative specialists
  • Individualised or group sessions with our allied health team
  • Patient support and education
  • Pre-admission preparation for surgery
  • Post-discharge guidance, assistance, and care.


Our team accepts referrals at any point in the surgical journey. Please contact us so that a member of our team can deliver our referral pads.

Referral when surgery is first contemplated gives our team the best chance to make meaningful changes to a patient’s overall health status prior to surgery and reduce their risk of experiencing a complication.

The peri-operative period is often a ‘teachable time’ for patients and a great opportunity to make lasting lifestyle changes.

Pre-operative assessment

Consultation with one of our peri-operative anaesthetists or physicians ideally at the point surgery is contemplated.

Post-operative assessment

Consultation with one of our rehab physicians following surgery.

Allied health support

Individualised or group sessions with our physiotherapists, dietitians, or psychotherapists. We operate a multidisciplinary approach through all stages of peri-operative care.

A single referral from you gives your patient access to the appropriate medical and allied health support they need.
