Dr Peter Hebbard

Peter Hebbard is a specialist anaesthetist with a particular interest in ultrasound guidance technology, novel techniques and medical device development. Over the last few years, he has been working primarily out of Northeast Health Wangaratta in the northeast of Victoria, and at the Wangaratta Private Hospital.

After many years of experience, Peter is proud to have developed a system to perform superficial procedures such as carpal tunnel release under ultrasound guidance using a novel needle-based tool called the “micro iBLADE “.

The “micro iBLADE “ procedure allows patients to get relief from the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome with minimal intervention and quicker recovery times. As with any new procedure, it’s carefully introduced and well monitored.
