Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgeons are medical specialists who perform surgery to correct problems that arise in the skeleton, supporting ligaments and muscles. The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry recognizes the practice of sport medicine as a speciality.

To improve the efficiency of service delivery, the orthopedic surgeons (who act as consultants at the Glen Sather Clinic) require a patient to be assessed by one of the clinic's sport medicine physicians prior to a consult with the patient. The sport medicine physicians are knowledgeable in the various forms of diagnostic testing required to ensure a thorough assessment of your condition by a surgeon, allowing treatment decisions to be made in an efficient manner at the time of your initial consult with the orthopedic surgeon.
