Certified Hand Therapist
Peter von Riedemann OT, CHT is our resident Certified Hand Therapist at Grant Gibson’s Surrey Sports & Rehabilitation Clinic. He has had over 20 years of experience managing wounds. He has taught at conferences and in Europe on this subject. Mr. von Riedemann is motivated and excited at seeing the increased function and decreased concern that his clients experience under his care.

Scarring Management at Our Clinic
Mr. von Riedemann uses the latest technologies, supported by his years of experience, to offer the best care possible to his clients. Laser, debridement and hydrophilic dressings are a few of the tools that he uses to manage wounds. These techniques increase the rate of wound healing, decrease the risk of infection and promote minimal scarring. Once the wound is healed, Mr. von Riedemann will provide care aimed at minimizing the scarring associated with the injury or surgery and maximizing the mobility and function of the area of the body involved in the wound. Massage techniques and scar management materials and modalities are all used to good effect in achieving goals aimed at maximal client satisfaction.
