HANDOC offers a comprehensive service for the acute management and rehabilitation of hand and wrist injuries in Western Australia.
HANDOC REDUCES THE IMPACT OF HAND INJURIES ON THE PATIENT AND THE EMPLOYER
HANDOC prides itself on providing prompt and comprehensive communication to everyone affected by a hand injury. This includes not only the patient, but also the employer, the insurance agency and the referring medical practitioner. We believe that good communication helps reduce the impact of hand and wrist injuries on everyone concerned.
REDUCE LOST TIME TO INJURY
HANDOC incorporates the largest group of specialist hand surgeons in Western Australia. Our medical professionals are all specialist plastic surgeons who hold consult positions in WA’s major hospitals and offer a complete surgery solution for workplace upper limb injuries.
SEVEN SPECIALIST HAND SURGEONS: CONTINUOUS SERVICE ALL YEAR
One telephone number offers total care when it comes to hand injuries. ‘1300 HANDOC’ puts an individual directly through to a specialised hand surgeon, where they or their medical provider can discuss the best course of action for a specific injury. HANDOC can also arrange immediate transportation in the Perth metropolitan area, to a private hospital where appropriate management can be implemented immediately. As a result, patients are managed by a Hand Specialist immediately rather than left waiting in a public hospital emergency department..
ONE NUMBER FOR TOTAL CARE: 1300 HANDOC
SPEAK DIRECTLY TO A HAND SURGEON, NO WAITING IN EMERGENCY ROOMS.
HANDOC surgeons are supported by an in-house team of nurses and independent hand therapists, an occupational physician and vocational rehabilitation providers. HANDOC’s focus is on reducing LTI’s and returning patients back to work as soon as medically feasible. Patients can also make an appointment for hand therapy at seven locations in Perth or Albany. This means they can choose a location close to home, which further enhances compliance and return to normal function – which of course means return to work.
