Surgical Teams

If you have been placed on the surgical waitlist for joint replacement, you will be assigned an orthopaedic surgeon that will perform your surgery. You can learn more about our surgical care pathway for Hip and Knee here and for Shoulders here. Each surgeon works with a team comprised of a medical office assistant and nurse case manager to ensure patients are prepared for surgery and have a successful recovery.
