The Burwood Surgical Service is a centre of excellence dedicated primarily to Elective Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation at Burwood Hospital.
This service encompasses the patient journey whether from the acute phase at Christchurch Hospital or from the pre-admission phase of elective surgery through to discharge.
The Surgical Service comprises of:
Orthopaedic Outpatients Department (OOPD)
Admitting Unit (AU)
Post-Anaesthetic Care Unit (PACU)
Special Care Unit (SCU)
Surgical Orthopaedic Unit (SOU)
Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Unit (ORU)
The Surgical Service utilises a Multi-disciplinary Team approach including Medical, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Ranga Hauora Māori Health, Social Work, Pharmacy and Dietetic services as required.
The Surgical Service is a state of the art surgical facility housing 4 purpose built theatres, an Admitting Unit and a 1st and 2nd stage PACU.
It also has a new 30 bed Surgical Unit and a 12 bed Special Care Unit, a 24 bed Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Unit and outpatient department.
The Surgical Service provides a supportive environment to both staff members and patients.
Following a recent change in the Model of Care our service now provides a structured approach to educational development opportunities.
It also provides an in-depth orientation period for new staff joining our service.
