Our work consists primarily of elective orthopedic procedures for injured patients from all across Canada. We also do select general surgery and Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) surgery. We are accredited as a non-hospital facility equipped to perform a comprehensive range of orthopedic surgical procedures, including total joint replacements and spinal procedures requiring an in-patient stay. For details on specific injuries we treat and the details that surround specific orthopedic procedures, click on one of the links below:
As the most flexible joint in the body, the shoulder joint allows for the placement and rotation of the arm in many positions in front and behind the body, as well as above and to the side. This flexibility makes the shoulder quite susceptible to instability, injury and various degrees of shoulder pain.
Injuries can cause knee pain and swelling making it difficult to bend or put weight on it. If swelling occurs immediately following an injury, this may suggest a ligament tear or fracture. If the swelling arises over a period of many hours, the meniscus or cartilage may have been injured.
Back Pain & Spine Surgery
Trauma, aging, improper body mechanics and normal wear and tear are all things that can damage the spine. Damage to any part of the back or pressure on the nerves in the spine can cause back pain, fortunately, back surgery is required in only a small number of cases.
Hernias are a defect in the muscle of the abdominal wall. They are a gap or a hole that the contents of the abdonimal cavity, such as fat, intestine and/or other organs, tend to be pushed through by the normal pressure that occurs within the abdomen. As this material pushes through the hernia defect, a bulge or localized area of swelling will become evident.
Weight Loss Surgery (Bariatric Surgery)
Obesity can cause many serious health problems and can make treating other health issues more difficult, people with obesity have shorter lifespans and lower quality of life. Excessive weight can impact every facet of your life, including work, recreation and relationships. If diet and exercise have not helped you obtain the weight you desire, you may benefit from a weight loss procedure.
Balloon Sinuplasty Surgery
Your nose is congested and you have difficulty breathing. Thick mucus irritates the back of your throat. You experience headaches from intense pressure in the sinus area and even your teeth begin to hurt. You feel tired and irritable, and you begin to lose your sense of smell and taste.
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Endoscopic sinus surgery is a surgical treatment that uses small cameras (endoscopes) that allow a surgeon to see inside the nose and, using small instruments, remove the inflamed tissue and bones of the sinuses. This helps to improve sinus function by removing inflamed tissue, improving ventilation in the sinuses and allowing for medications to reach the sinus cavity.
Rhinoplasty surgery is truly a “functional art”, as any surgery that alters the outside appearance of the nose will affect nasal function. This is why it is of utmost importance for your surgery to be performed by a surgeon who specializes in nasal surgery, both inside and outside the nose.
