Surgery of the Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand Upper Limb Trauma

As a Brisbane based Orthopaedic Surgeon I am able to provide comprehensive and modern, non operative and operative solutions for all shoulder and upper limb conditions. I would be delighted to detail ways of restoring health and function in a personal consultation. On this webpage you will find a first insight of the broad therapy spectrum. The dictionary explains the most common medical terms used in orthopaedic surgery.

Non operative management

Due to an onsite cooperation including physiotherapy, occupational and hand therapy we are able to offer a wide range of non operative measures. These include modern early active exercise protocols as well as custom made thermoplastic braces. That also means, that post surgical rehabilitation can be facilitated in our rooms always in close contact with the treating orthopaedic surgeon.

Modern, tissue sparing surgical procedures

As an internationally and fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon with many years of experience in the sub specialty of shoulder and upper limb surgery I am able to offer a whole spectrum of modern, tissue sparing and often minimally invasive procedures (arthroscopy/ keyhole surgery). The majority of these can be carried out as day cases.
