From August this year Dr O’Carrigan will be offering an Australian Orthopaedic Association approved Fellowship for suitably qualified Orthopaedic Surgeons who have obtained their FRACS(Fellowship of Royal Australasian College of Surgeons) or equivalent.
The Stryde Nail is a stainless steel nail that is the same as the Precice Nail except in its construction materials. The Precice is a Titanium nail which allows us to lengthen bones at the rate and rhythm required for optimal bone healing. It uses an External Magnetic Field that drives an internal magnet that controls the lengthening. We have extensive experience with the Precice with excellent results and it has become the Gold Standard for intramedullary lengthening nails and in many cases has replaced the requirement for the use of External Fixateurs to achieve lengthening.
In September 2018 Dr Tim O’Carrigan was appointed to Macquarie University Hospital as part of the Limb Reconstruction Centre at MQ Health.
Dr O’Carrigan has recently joined the team at the Musculoskeletal Institute with A/Prof Munjed, Al Muderis and Prof Kevin Tetsworth.
