Pamela has worked extensively with patients with upper limb and hand injuries such as repetitive strain injuries, traumatic injuries including bone fractures, tendon injury, nerve injury and crush amputation injury. She places great emphasis on the importance of hand function and overall function in her patients. She strives to use innovative and evidence-based methods to maximise functional recovery after injury.
