Queensland Lithotripsy Services is based at Brisbane Private Hospital, on the well known medical strip – Wickham Terrace – in Spring Hill, Brisbane.
Brisbane Private Hospital (formerly Holy Spirit Hospital) has been a major Lithotripsy centre since 1990. This made it an ideal location to set up an orthopaedic clinic.
Our Orthopaedic Lithotripsy clinic was set up in 2000 and as such has been running now for 18 years, with regular referrals from amongst our Specialists, GPs, Physiotherapists and Podiatrists.
The QLS clinic uses the ONLY dedicated, ultrasound guided machines in Queensland.
Your treatment is not done in conjunction with any other treatment, it is a dedicated lithotripsy treatment.
Our clinic is available for patients with many different tendon inflammatory conditions, some involving calcium deposits because of persisting inflammation, despite having tried many other options such as anti-inflammatories, cortisone, orthotics, strapping, stretches etc to no avail. The clinic is also now available for a range of other conditions (For comprehensive list please see our CONDITIONS page)
Plantar fasciitis is the most common condition treated with consistently good success, we also treat many other areas eg lymphoedema, erectile dysfunction, carpel tunnel, Shin Splints.
Overall we have treated over 5000 patients with varying problems, with good outcomes, even though other options may have all failed before.
We DO NOT however treat any areas around the spine, nor do we treat any arthritic problems.
At Queensland Lithotripsy Services, our focus is your health – we want to see your quality of life returned to you, as tendon inflammation can be very debilitating and depressing.
