In all our clinical services, we strive to deliver compassionate and patient-centered quality care that meets both the physical and emotional needs of our patients.


As the director of clinical services, I oversee all aspects of clinical care for our Division to ensure that the highest quality is delivered both in terms of accessibility and effectiveness. Our Division also has clinical leads in each of the orthopaedic subspecialties that we offer. In the links below, you will find a list of our orthopaedic subspecialty programs and information on the care they provide. I hope you will find the links useful and can guide you in the right direction.
