MT WILGA FAREWELLS ‘ONE-OF-A-KIND’ REHABILITATION CONSULTANT
A well-respected rehabilitation
consultant has retired after working at
Mt Wilga Private Rehabilitation Hospital
for nearly 30 years.
Dr Helen Mackie qualified as a
consultant and started work in 1986,
before moving into private practice at Mt
Wilga four years later.
Mt Wilga Private Rehabilitation Hospital CEO, Lorrie Mohsen,
said: “She truly is one of the most accomplished doctors I have
had the privilege to work with.”
Dr Mackie started Mt Wilga’s Back Rehabilitation and Pain
Management Program when she joined the hospital and
remained as the medical director of the program for 22 years.
She set her sights on another challenge in 1992, working
alongside head physiotherapist at the time, Nick Stepkovich, to
develop the hospital’s Lymphoedema Clinic.
The clinic helps patients suffering complex lymphoedema, which
is the swelling of multiple limbs or the whole body, due to the
accumulation of excess lymph fluid in the tissue.
“Dr Mackie is a worldwide leader in this field and her expertise
has been the topic of her many research publications. Mt Wilga
owes much of its excellent reputation to her hard work,” Mrs
During her career, Dr Mackie also built her reputation as an
expert in musculoskeletal disorders, multiple sclerosis and the
late effects of polio.
She has had appointments at six public hospitals in Australia, is
registered to practice in Papua New Guinea, South Africa and
Western Samoa; she has become known for her courage in
taking on the most difficult cases.
“That is what makes her truly special – her devotion to giving
everyone a go and never giving up on anyone under any
circumstances,” Mrs Mohsen said.
Dr Mackie will continue to see outpatients until mid-next year
at Mt Wilga and intends to embark on a PhD on lower limb
lymphoedema. She is also looking forward to spending more
time with her husband, children and grandchildren.
