How quickly can I have surgery?
This will depend on the extent of the injury and the procedure required to fix it. In most cases, if it something that needs to be done urgently, we can organise this to happen within the required time frame.
Do you see patients who have had a work injury?
Yes, we do see patients who have had a work injury. The patient will require approval to see Dr Safvat (except in the case of emergencies) and will need to provide a claim number.
Once I have the surgery, will I require any further treatment?
Depending on the nature of the injury, most patients will require hand therapy following their surgery. Dr Safvat will go through the recovery process in detail during the consultation.
Will further surgery be required?
This will depend on the extent of the problem. In some cases, additional surgery may be required to restore your hand’s function and, in some cases, appearance.
