Counties Manukau Health Orthopaedics
Public Service, Orthopaedics
These clinics are run by the Orthopaedic Department for patients who have sustained an injury that has already been treated and further follow-up of that injury is required to monitor progress.
Often at these fracture clinics x-rays are taken on arrival to check the position of the bone in a cast and to decide when other steps in management such as re-manipulation of fracture, removal of a cast or change of the management plan is required.
An appointment time will be given. You may be at the clinic for several hours if you require x-rays, plaster/fibreglass casts removed or any other treatments.
Fracture Clinics are held at Manukau SuperClinic™ Module 1 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
