Southern Cross Auckland Surgical Centre - Orthopaedic Surgery

Private Surgical Service, Orthopaedics

This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.

Description

Auckland Surgical Centre has an established pedigree in day stay surgical services and a reputation for innovation in relation to anaesthetics and pain management related to those services. The hospital's strong reputation in the Auckland region has been built around these strengths, and also its leading orthopaedic and plastic surgery services.

In terms of facilities, significant expansion at Auckland Surgical Centre, in 1996, allowed the hospital to accommodate 4 operating theatres, stage one recovery facilities, day-stay recovery areas, and a 20-bed overnight stay facility. More recent upgrades to patient and consulting areas and facilities, including the patient reception area, have been completed.

Procedures / Treatments

Ankle Arthroscopy

Two or three small incisions (cuts) are made in the ankle and a small telescopic instrument with a tiny camera attached (arthroscope) is inserted. This allows the surgeon to look inside the joint, identify problems and, in some cases, operate. Tiny instruments can be passed through the arthroscope to remove bony spurs, damaged cartilage or inflamed tissue.

Carpal Tunnel Release

Surgery to relieve carpal tunnel syndrome involves making an incision (cut) from the middle of the palm of your hand to your wrist. Tissue that is pressing on the nerve is then cut to release the pressure.

Dupuytren’s Contracture

This condition occurs when there is abnormal thickening of the deep tissue between the palm of your hand and your fingers. This thickening occurs very gradually and will start to make your fingers curl toward your palm. If this condition gets to the stage where it significantly limits your hand function, surgery may be recommended. This usually involves removal of the thickened tissue, allowing you to straighten your fingers again.
