Dr Marel has been a consultant orthopaedic surgeon since 1990, and is transitioning to retirement at the end of 2020. It has been a privilege for him to serve the great people of Sydney and the Dee Why area and the great people of Bathurst, Blayney, Sofala, Kandos, Hill End, Oberon and all the other surrounding areas.

To ensure continuity of care 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.

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.
