The Spine Society of Australia supports the Australian Government’s decision to temporarily suspend elective surgery, except for urgent Category 2 procedures. Category 1 surgery will continue.
Appropriately, the Prime Minister has left the categorisation of the proposed surgery (Category 1 or urgent Category 2) to the treating surgeon.
Please find via the link below the Spine Society of Australia’s information on Category 1 and 2 procedures.
