Your Health Matters – Are Physiotherapists licensed to do surgery?

Bill: You can…

Steve: But you probably shouldn’t.

Bill: You probably shouldn’t try. Yeah. We’re registered with the organization called AHPRA. The Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency. No, we’re not licensed to do surgery in Australia. So, we probably like to but, no.

Steve:  I think the only surgery we do is that we cut tape before applying it.

Bill: Yeah.

Steve: That’s probably all.

Bill: Fortunately for everyone in Australia, I have some pretty good mates who are surgeons. I’ll leave the surgery up to them.
