Most orthopaedic procedures require the involvement of a therapist afterwards to help coordinate rehabilitation, be it a physiotherapist, hand therapist or occupational therapist.
Dr Shooter is happy to work with you preferred therapist (if you have one) and can provide written guidelines for treatment.
For upper limb and hand surgery, Dr Shooter recommends the EKCO group, who have multiple locations across Brisbane.
They will provide post surgical wound care, change your casts (if you have one) to the appropriate splint, and guide your rehabilitation.
For lower limb surgery, Dr Shooter recommends Stephen Boyd Physiotherapy, who have locations in central and north Brisbane.
