To ensure continuity of care, Dr Lachlan Host, of Panorama Orthopaedics in Keppel Street is taking over Dr Marel's Bathurst patient records and will see any of his Bathurst patients requiring further attention.

For Sydney patients, and any Bathurst patients who need to have surgery in Sydney (for example those with considerable co-morbidities or particularly high operative risk factors for whom surgery at North Shore Private is appropriate), please refer to Dr Tristan Rappo at Peninsula Orthopaedics in Frenchs Forest. Dr Marel and Dr Rappo will be working together in Sydney for the next few months and after Dr Marel's retirement, Dr Rappo will maintain access to all his patient records.

After turning off Panorama Avenue, take the first right at the roundabout. Drive past the first carpark and turn into the second carpark. The entrance to Building 1470 is well signed. It is a ground floor clinic that is wheelchair and pram friendly.
