Dr Ralph Stanford

At the heart of his practice are 5 key principles:

 Patient ease & informed
Your comfort and well-being are paramount and that starts at our first appointment. He takes the time to understand your medical condition and answer every question you have. It is important to him that you feel at ease and are fully informed about all your options.

 Fast appointments
If your condition is urgent or critical, he will see you at his next available clinic. He does not want you to be in undue pain for any longer than need be.

 Explore all treatment options
Surgery is serious and complex. Which is why he explores all the treatment options open to you. Many conditions improve with time or life style adjustments and in fact he operates on just 17% of the patients he sees.

 Surgery using precision technology
When it comes to surgery Dr Ralph Stanford uses computer-aided navigation which results in even more precise surgery. It saves time, is safer and he finds it leads to better outcomes.

 Public & Private
Dr Ralph Stanford is committed to the well-being of all patients and he does not want money preventing patients from accessing the best medical treatment. He operates in both the private and public hospitals.  If it is appropriate, he can also see you at the POWH outpatient clinic, which is a bulk billing service.
