hand & WRIST surgery

Hands are intricate structures within the human body, forming a sophisticated network of bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons, and blood vessels. Frequently, instances of hand and wrist discomfort respond well to conservative measures such as rest, ice, and over-the-counter pain relievers. However, certain conditions may require surgical intervention. We offer treatment for a wide range of hand and wrist surgical conditions, including trauma, tendon injuries, nerve injuries, Dupuytren’s disease, carpal tunnel syndrome and many other conditions.

What is HAND SURGERY?

Hand surgery encapsulates both elective and trauma surgeries. Elective surgery commonly treats ganglions, carpal tunnel, trigger finger, dupuytren's and arthritis that affect the everyday function and appearance of the hand.

Our experienced surgeons are involved in the treatment and management of all hand trauma cases ranging from nailbed injuries through to major microsurgical cases for complete replantation of digits and limbs.

Quite often, hand and wrist pain can be treated with rest, ice and over-the-counter painkillers. But some hand and wrist pain may require surgery. 

In 2019, Dr Theo Birch and Dr Andrew Hadj successfully reattached a man's hand after a workplace accident.

WHEN IS HAND SURGERY REQUIRED?

Our reliance on hands becomes evident when faced with issues stemming from injury or inflammation. Before considering hand surgery, doctors typically explore non-surgical avenues.

Prior to surgery, treatment options for hand and wrist pain are:

Resting your hands.
Splinting.
Occupational therapy.
Physiotherapy and hand exercises.
Painkillers.

If these approaches prove ineffective, your doctor may recommend consulting a hand surgeon, often involving the expertise of a plastic surgeon.

How it works

REFERRAL

We require a GP referral for all surgical procedures. Please book in with your GP to discuss and obtain a referral.

CONSULTATION

After referral, you will have two consultations with our team prior to booking in your procedure. The first consultation will be with the surgeon who will be performing your procedure and will be in-person – this is a great time to discuss the specifics of your situation, the outcomes you are hoping to achieve, your personal health and lifestyle concerns and attributes, along with all possible treatment options, the recovery process and any risks involved. Your second consultation may be with your surgeon again, or could be with another of our team who is qualified to consult on your treatment. At least one consultation must be in-person at one of our practices.

After your two consultation appointments, you can provide signed consent for the decided upon treatment and your procedure will be booked in. There is a 7 day cooling off period from the day of your signed consent.

If you are under the age of 18 years, please contact us directly to discuss your consultation process as it will differ to the process for adult patients.
