Our Athlete's Care clinics offer consultations with an Orthopedic Surgeon at two Ottawa locations. They work within a multidisciplinary team at the Ottawa clinics that includes sports medicine doctors, athletic therapists and others in a collaborative environment. We are pleased to offer orthopedic surgery consultations to clients in the Ottawa region as part of our spectrum of sports medicine services.
The Orthopedic Surgeons at our Ottawa clinics are highly trained and skilled physicians with years of experience in clinical practice and research. Orthopedic surgery is a certified surgical specialty in conditions that involve the musculoskeletal system. Candidates receive extensive education as part of a post-graduate program in medicine, including a multi-year residency program after graduation. Continued certification as a practising orthopedic surgeon in Ottawa requires periodic reviews and re-examinations along with continued education.
The orthopedic surgeons on our Ottawa team are certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. They are leaders in their field who act as educators and mentors. Our orthopedic surgeons are active members on staff at Ottawa-area hospitals and many have provided care as part of the medical team at major sporting events. They are educators and researchers as well as clinical practitioners and many also participate in conferences and congresses as speakers and lecturers.
They have treated elite professional athletes, including professional league players and Olympians, along with recreational and amateur athletes and motor vehicle and work accident victims.
Orthopedic surgeons are available for consultation with other members of the Athlete's Care multidisciplinary team at our Ottawa clinics, including sports medicine physicians, physiotherapists, massage therapists and chiropractors. You can expect the very best of care using up to the minute techniques and procedures.
In suggesting treatment for their patients, our Ottawa-based orthopedic surgeons draw from a solid body of knowledge. They are experts in the musculoskeletal system and anatomy and commonly treat a range of injuries, disorders and conditions, including but not limited to,
• Bone fractures
• Sprains and strains
• Damage to muscles and connective tissue (ligaments and tendons)
• Spinal injuries such as a ruptured disc
The scope of treatment provided by our Ottawa Orthopedic Surgeons includes pre- and post-operative as well as non-surgical consultations. Their areas of specialization include,
• Joint replacement prosthetic - such as knee, hip and shoulder replacement
• Rotator cuff repair
• Arthroscopic surgery - surgery on a joint such as the knee using a narrow tube
• Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction - repair of the major ligament of the knee

They may also recommend the use of braces and orthotics as part of a comprehensive plan for rehabilitation and recovery.
