Hervey Bay Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dr Simon Elix is the founder and Director of Nautilus Orthopaedics in Darwin and recently expanded his practice nationally, with the establishment of Nautilus Orthopaedics in Queensland. Consultations are performed in the brand new Madsen Medical, a purpose built medical facility opposite Hervey Bay Hospital.

Areas of interest include: Joint Replacement (including hip, knee and shoulder) Sports Surgery (including complex knee and shoulder surgery), General Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery.

ACL Reconstruction Surgery

Dr Elix has special interest in Anatomic ACL reconstructions and multi ligament knee surgery.

Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery

He is experienced in complex arthroscopic shoulder surgery including all arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.

Hip Replacement Surgery

He performs a large number of joint replacement surgeries in QLD and NT and focuses on the use of safe, modern bearing surfaces, including large volume ceramic hip replacements.

Knee Replacement Surgery

Dr Elix focuses on efficient and well proven surgical methods, using multimodal pain relief and blood loss minimisation techniques. He has performed a large number of knee replacements in QLD and NT and has demonstrated very low complication rates for this procedure. He works very closely with his anaesthetist and physiotherapist to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Sports Surgeon

Dr Elix also employs a number of non surgical modalities to help patients deal with painful orthopaedic conditions. Examples of these include arthritic joint visco-supplementation and Platelet Rich Plasma Injections to heal damaged tendons. He has recently included a Tendon Shockwave device on site in Hervey Bay, delivering a safer and more effective alternative to traditional therapies.
