Dear Patients Colleagues and Friends,It’s taken a little while but we would like to introduce the QLD LRC facebook page for you’re your feedback, comments and communication. We’ve been quite busy over the last few months so apologies for the delay! Our most recent news was that the International Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society meeting was held in Miami Florida from the 4-8 November. Dr Maine attended this conference which discussed new surgical techniques, new technologies and the latest best practice recommendations for these highly complex cases. The opportunity to liaise with international experts offers a wealth of information and experience that is invaluable in ensuring we provide our patients the very best care we can achieve.
The QLRC has been established with the intention of providing an Orthopaedic Service that is able to treat both adults and children for a range of orthopaedic problems from Paediatric Sports Injury to Adult Limb Reconstruction surgery.
Our aim is to assist our patients in achieving their best possible function and quality of life.
We appreciate that contemplating surgery for yourself or for your child can be an intimidating prospect.
We pride ourselves on delivering a service that provides a thorough assessment of your condition as well as the most up to date and evidence based treatment options.
It is our aim to communicate this with you so that you have an appreciation of your diagnosis with clear explanation of your treatment options and management plan.
Our ultimate priority will always be the best possible standard of care for you or your child.
Please feel free to browse our website and please send us an email if you have any questions.
Are you worried about the shape of your child’s legs or feet???
The Alignment Screening in Kids clinic (ASK) is a service run by Paediatric Physiotherapist Alana Jessop in conjunction with Dr Maine.
Alana has an extensive background in managing children with bow legs, knock knees, intoeing and gait abnormalities.
It is very rare for a child under the age of 7 to need surgery to correct alignment issues and it can be difficult to get an appointment with a paediatric orthopaedic surgeon if you are concerned about your child.
Dr Maine had the recent privilege of presenting and instructing at the annual Australian Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society (ALLARS) meeting in Sydney.
This society brings together reconstruction surgeons from around Australia and New Zealand to share their knowledge and discuss difficult cases where there is little evidence upon which treatment can be based.
Our understanding of limb lengthening techniques continues to improve and we particularly look forward to a new lengthening nail which will allow patients to weight beat while undergoing their lengthening procedures.
Really proud to present this paper recently accepted by the Journal of ISAKOS on factors that influence dislocating kneecaps in children.
We are improving our understanding of the condition so that we can offer consistently excellent and reliable results to our patients.
QLD Limb Reconstruction Clinic would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and safe Easter.
Another busy week in the clinic with the addition of another new clinician to the team.
She has worked alongside Dr Maine at Queensland Children’s Hospital for many years and has recently expanded her practice into the private domain.
