Welcome to the Garden Route Hand Unit The Garden Route Hand Unit was established in 2016 and is based in George in the Western Cape. As an integrated unit for the specialised management of all diseases and injuries affecting the hand and upper limb, it hosts highly specialised hand surgeons and hand therapists.
At the Garden Route Hand Unit, we treat all conditions of the upper limbs, including the hand, wrist, forearm and elbow, as well as peripheral nerve conditions.
Our Hand Surgeons and Hand Therapists work together, taking a team approach to provide the highest standard of care. We aim to ensure cost-effective, complete and comprehensive management, which is individualised for each patient.
At the Garden Route Hand Unit, we believe that optimal results are achieved through the continued communication, involvement and collaboration between the treating surgeon and specialised therapists. We have a friendly and co-operative working environment between the specialist Hand Surgeon and dedicated Hand Therapists. We focus on the restoration of the functional, work, sport and recreational use of the hand without neglecting the aesthetic and communicative role the hand plays.
