The QLS Difference
Queensland Lithotripsy Services clinic uses the only dedicated, ultrasound guided machine in Queensland.
Your treatment is not done in conjunction with any other treatment, it is a dedicated lithotripsy treatment.
Our goal is to treat the underlying cause, not to only provide symptom relief.
The Right Focus
At QLS our focus is you and your health - we want to see your quality of life returned to you as these painful conditions can be very draining and debilitating.
The Right Equipment
Using state of the art technology means you get a very accurately focused treatment as we can see exactly where and how deep to treat.
We use 2 different shockwave systems to tailor your treatment. Many tendons sit at different depths. In addition, using ultrasound guidance for visualisation allows us to calculate that exact depth and use the best piece of equipment for your treatment.
The Right Experience
Our Brisbane based orthopaedic lithotripsy clinic was set up in 2000 and has been running for over 20 years, with referrals from specialists, GPs, Physiotherapists and Podiatrists coming to the team. Our new clinic at the Gold Coast opened in 2020, extending QLS services down the coast.
The Right Team
Our friendly staff can assist you in scheduling an appointment. For certain conditions a referral may be required. When you speak to our Health Professional they will be able to determine whether this is required.
The Right Record
We have treated over 5000 patients with varying conditions. For many of these patients they have already tried many other options, such as anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections, orthotics, strapping, stretches, and more, to no avail. These very patients regularly achieve successful outcomes with focused shockwave lithotripsy.
Your treatment is not done in conjunction with any other treatment. It is a dedicated lithotripsy treatment. With over 2 decades of working exclusively with lithotripsy, QLS has a unique advantage over other services.
We use both focused and radial shockwave systems. For most tendon applications focused is the preferred method and is very accurate.
Having both types of technology also allows us to treat additional areas such as carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, lymphoedema and Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronies disease.
Focused Shockwave therapy
Tendon injuries, pain and inflammation often lends itself to focused shockwave therapy, and in combination with ultrasound guidance for visualisation, an exact treatment can be applied at the optimal depth.
Radial Shockwave therapy
Each patient and their condition is unique; and although QLS' specialisation is focused shockwave therapy, often with Ultraound guidance for accuracy, radial shockwave therapy is very effective for a range of conditions, such as lymphoedema or carpal tunnel syndrome.
Ultrasound Guidance and Precision
Seeing is believing: QLS' distinct combination of equipment includes high resolution ultrasound, enabling unparalleled clarity of where the underlying issues are to focus treatment for the most effect.
20 Years of Experience
We have treated over 5000 patients with varying conditions. For a large proportion of these patients they have already tried many other options prior to coming for treatment at QLS, such as anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections, orthotics, strapping, stretches etc to no avail
Shockwaves are our only specialisation
