Our surgeons treat all conditions of the hand, wrist, forearm and elbow, as well as peripheral nerve conditions. Both Dr Pelser and Dr Jordaan have been overseas to further their studies completing various hand surgery fellowships at highly reputable orthopaedic hand units in the United Kingdom, before coming to George. Dr Pelser and Jordaan established Garden Route Hand Unit in 2016, the first of its kind in the area.
The five primary procedures performed at George Surgical Centre are:
• Carpal tunnel release • Ganglion excision
• Reconstruction of thumb osteo-arthritis • Dupuytren’s contracture release
• Joint fusion and replacement in fingers
At George Surgical Centre we provide modern surgical facilities for all patients undergoing Hand Surgery. We also have a Mobile C- Arm machine for smart intra- operative X-ray imaging as well as a small joint Arthroscope imaging platform.
