Orthopaedic consultation service for Wide Bay area patients including Hervey Bay, Maryborough, Bundaberg, Gladstone, Gympie and the Fraser Coast.
Dr Simon Elix is the founder and Director of Nautilus Orthopaedics in his hometown of Darwin and recently expanded his practice nationally, with the establishment of Nautilus Orthopaedics in Hervey Bay, Queensland in 2016.
He works very closely with his medical and allied health team to ensure smooth post operative recovery with employment of new blood loss minimisation techniques, multi-site local anaesthesia and nerve blocks. He prides himself on the use of less invasive, small incision surgery with early post surgical mobilisation. He is focussed on improving outcomes based on technological and scientific advances but is very careful to avoid ‘fad’ surgery that is more driven by marketing than science.
