The hand and wrist services forms part of the Isle of Wight Upper Limb Unit. As a unit we aim to provide the best possible care for our patients by continually developing our services and remaining at the forefront of upper limb surgery. We aim to achieve this by continuous evaluation of our service and involvement in clinical research.
Our team consists of:
|Mr D Gheorghiu
||Natasha Locans||01983 534856|
|Mr J Scadden||Jennifer Deavall/
The department has recognised expertise in the following areas:
If you require a clinic appointment or wish to enquire about your appointment you can contact the outpatient department on 01983 534161.
Our clinics take place on Wednesdays and Fridays at St Mary´s Hospital.
We have a close working relationship with occupational therapists and physiotherapists. For some conditions and for some patients after having surgery, hand therapy forms a vital part of the treatment. Where required we may be able to organise specialist hand therapy and splintage on the day that you are seen in clinic.
Most hand surgery is done as day surgery. This means that the majority of patients will attend the hospital on the day of surgery have their operation and go home later that day.
