Dr Hans Lombard’s focus is on delivering best quality care of hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder conditions, thereby helping patients to maintain and regain the active lifestyle that is so characteristic of the Sunshine Coast.

He qualified as an orthopaedic surgeon in Cape Town South Africa 2006. In 2009, he passed the Australian fellowship exam and was awarded Fellowship the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

Following this he completed a fellowship in Upper Limb Surgery at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in 2010 and has been in practice on the Sunshine Coast since 2011.

For the safest, and most comfortable experience Dr Lombard performs many hand and wrist procedures under sedation (twilight anaesthetic) combined with local or regional anaesthesia where possible.

He works in close collaboration with Hand Therapists and Physiotherapists for post-operative rehabilitation after surgery. Dr Lombard believes that a collaborative approach is important to give patients the best possible outcome after surgery. Therapist and surgeon appointments are often combined, saving patients time and expense.
