I am disappointed at some of the comments below and want to defend Dr Skinner in my comment as one of his patients without negating others views with all respect to them and their experience . I had a total Left hip replacement nearly 20 years ago by Dr Skinner and are only now looking at a revision. I had my op when Dr Skinner was practicing in Kalgoorlie. I can understand why some may find him a little abrasive as he is honest, direct and comes straight to the point. He told me alot of my problems was I was overweight and therefore putting alot of excess pressure on my joints, I could have taken that as a negative but the truth was I was overweight and his comment made me adjust my lifestyle, so a -ve to a +ve. I found his preoperative examinations extremely thorough; his explanations were excellent and supported by drawings to enhance my understanding. I never felt intimidated by Dr Skinner's approach, I guess I saw it as the mark of a professsional often deeply engrossed in my case; to say that he didn't give me 100% would be unfair. I am a naturally curious person so I put many questions to him and he never gave me the impression I was taking up his time. To be fair, I find most Specialists aloff by nature. Anyway, my hip has lasted nearly 20 years, I found Dr skinner an impressively dedicated surgeonwho did a cracker job for me. That person who commented that they sort a second opinion, good on you, it's your right.....your body......your life so be happy about your choice. For mine, I was very happy I choose Dr Skinner. All the best to everyone

I was referred to Mr Skinner for removal of screws which I had been told could be done as an outpatient procedure. However, Mr Skinner wished for me to undergo a general anaesthetic for a procedure which was to take 20 minutes. I booked in but didn't feel comfortable. I got a second opinion and was advised it wasn't necessary to have the risk of a GA plus the associated cost of being admitted to hospital/theatre fees. I then heard from friends and family once I told them my story, of similar issues they experienced with Mr Skinner. Out of interest, I then checked Mr Skinner's registration with AHPRA and noted he currently has conditions regarding required retraining/supervision.

I found Dr Skinner to be as well as an obvious absolute professional a really nice guy with no airs or graces. He spoke to me in layman terms so I could understand what was going on and I felt comfortable in his presence and safe under his care.My total right hip replacement........Its been not much over a year and I've almost forgotten about it...like I didn't even have one
