Surgical Rehab Specialists is a revolutionary physiotherapy practice, providing quality care for people before and after surgery.  At Surgical Rehab Specialists, we work closely with Auckland's leading surgeons.  You can trust you will receive quality, hands-on physiotherapy care, as well as specific exercise rehabilitation.

Surgery can be an inevitable course of management for a large variety of musculoskeletal conditions, and at Surgical Rehab Specialists we want to make this process as painless as possible. Leading up to your surgery you may be referred to the clinic for ‘pre-hab’. It is widely known that strengthening and education prior to surgery significantly improves patient outcomes.

Following surgery, you will receive comprehensive hands-on treatment, and exercise-based rehabilitation based on your surgeons recommendations and protocols. We can also look after the other things - improving your scars, and arranging equipment such as braces if necessary. This package will be overseen by experienced, specialised physiotherapists who will liaise closely with the surgeon that has performed the operation. Clear communication between the surgeon, patient and the physiotherapist, will ensure you are well looked after.

Patrick is a high-performance, sports-specific physiotherapist. Having done Gymnastics at a high level for 15 years of his life; 2 Commonwealth Games and 5 World Championships later, he ended up getting a pretty good idea of what the human body is capable of, as well as what happens when the body decides to fail.

Patrick graduated from AUT in 2011, with a BHSc (Physiotherapy), then continued on to post graduate study in Acupuncture and gained CMP status. Patrick has recently returned to New Zealand, after a 2 year stint in London. During that time, he increased his experience in sports medicine, working in various sports physiotherapy practices. Patrick was the New Zealand physiotherapist at the recent Rio Olympic Test Event.

Patrick has a great passion for all things sports, particularly high-level rehabilitation and fixing all those annoying little niggles we all have to live through. Patrick is also an avid beer and wine enthusiast.
