Orthopedic surgery : a quick return to health

Montreal Institute for Special Surgery is the authority in orthopedic surgery by arthroscopy (using a camera) of the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee. The institute also disposes a special unit of surgery for the wrist and the hand. To complete the service of orthopedics, we offer you surgery of hip and knee replacement. The majority of our patients have difficulty meeting a specialist in the public system. Their names are among many waiting lists in orthopedic surgery that extend to a two-year waiting period. Our fast and humane approach is therefore an essential solution. If necessary, surgery can be scheduled within two weeks. We have understood that a rapid intervention guaranties healing. The inacceptable deadlines in hospital operating rooms risk, on the contrary, to aggravate a wound to the point of becoming a permanent handicap. Do not wait any longer and consult one of our specialists.
