Dr Murat Acar

MBBS FAFRM (RACP)

Rehabilitation Medicine Physician



ABOUT

Murat completed his undergraduate Medical Degree at the University of Sydney in 1993.

Choosing the emergent medical specialty, Rehabilitation Medicine, to focus his interest on helping patients with disability, he completed his training in the major teaching hospitals of Westmead and Concord Hospitals and wider Sydney. His training at the Brain Injury Unit of Westmead developed his knowledge and experience in the complex management of people with cognitive and physical impairments arising from traumatic brain injury.

Dr Acar has worked in a variety of settings: hospitals, private practice and outpatient medical centres. By coordinating and implementing various allied medical services, Murat enables his patients to meet the challenges of their recovery, prioritise the problem list, and work through a pragmatic action plan in consultation with the patient.

Since 2001, Murat has practised as a Rehabilitation Physician at the reputable Mt Wilga Private Hospital—a hospital distinguished in its comprehensive rehabilitation services since its establishment as a Commonwealth Government facility in 1953 and well supported under present management owned by the Ramsay Health Care group.

Through his private practice, Murat offers rehabilitation management of disabilities associated with stroke, brain tumours, multiple sclerosis, paraplegia, spinal surgery, heart surgery, joint replacement surgery and orthopaedic trauma, as well as conditions which may affect participation in daily activities, life roles and leisure pursuits.

In the outpatient medical centre setting, Dr Acar offers management of degenerative conditions such as arthritis, work and motor vehicle injuries. Many of his patients are National Disability Insurance Scheme(NDIS)/Lifetime Care and Support Scheme(LTCS) participants or are applying for NDIS/LTCS participation.

Murat is experienced in the provision of comprehensive medicolegal reports for people with a disability for the purpose of legal proceedings, including objective whole person impairment assessments across the jurisdiction of Work Cover and Motor Accidents Authority. These assessments are conducted on a discretionary basis.

Dr Acar has also had responsibilities in the Medical Advisory Committees of various rehabilitation hospitals, including as Chair of the Medical Advisory Committee of Mt Wilga Private Hospital.

He has had additional responsibilities in the functions of the Australasian Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, the peak body responsible for the training of Rehabilitation Physicians, including New Fellow Representative of the Board of Censors and Member of the Board of Examiners.
