NOTICE: RETURN OF ELECTIVE SURGERY
Good news! We are pleased to confirm the reinstatement of elective surgery across South Australia. From Monday 7th February day surgery will begin, and by Monday 21st February we expect to see a full resumption of elective surgery. The Doctors and staff at Wakefield Orthopaedic Clinic would like to thank all our patients and carers for their understanding in these difficult times. We will do our best to catch up with a backlog of cases swiftly, and please do contact your surgeon if you feel you need to be seen urgently.
An Integrated Team to Manage Shoulder Injuries and Disorders
Injuries and disorders of the shoulder are best managed by an integrated team providing precise assessment and investigation, with evidence-based management comprising physiotherapy and other non-operative modalities, as well as surgical reconstruction and repair where appropriate.
Consistent with this philosophy, referral of patients can be directed to our:
- Initial assessment and diagnosis
- Early review and an expedient management care strategy
- Option for on referral as needed.
- Physiotherapy management regime
- Targeted shoulder rehabilitation
- Hydrotherapy and exercises.
- Where surgical assessment and care may be required or where conservative management has failed to achieve a satisfactory outcome.
