Melbourne Rebels Rugby Union Team

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Mr Mutimer regularly volunteers as a Plastic Surgeon with the Melbourne Rebels, attending their home games at AAMI Park. He also volunteers for international test matches.  Keith works alongside practice nurse (Rachel) - attending games and treating injured players from both teams. 

Keith can regularly be seen working among the match day volunteer medical team which includes paramedics, team doctors and game day doctors.  He helps to assess and treat concussions and dislocations as well as treats players for facial and scalp lacerations. Having Rachel assist on the day proves valuable given they work to incredibly tight time frames (if injured players are not back on the field within 9 minutes they can not return to the game)!

Mr Mutimer also looks after players as needed when they sustain lacerations in training, which is often on a Sunday. His passion for the sport ensures treating players in his down time is never a chore.  Many of the players also visit Brighton Plastic Surgery for follow up care.

On the odd occasion that no one gets injured, Keith can be found enjoying the match!

We remain open, however our surgeons are currently only seeing patients for skin cancers and trauma. As a result, our practice may operate on limited hours some days.

Wherever possible we have moved to telehealth for other appointments.   We are not able to undertake any wrinkle reduction or cosmetic treatments until further notice, we are however taking bookings for when it is safe to resume.

For urgent (trauma) cases arising after hours – we’ve added after hour surgeon contact details to our main office phone. If you call and our practice is closed, you’ll receive further instruction. Please note that contacting surgeons out of hours is only for urgent cases.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenging times.
