Orthopedic Surgery

When you need a hip or knee replacement, have any type of bone facture or need cartilage repair, it's not just a health care issue, it's about your quality of life. It's about being able to function in day-to-day activities and being able to enjoy time with your family, kids or grandchildren.

At Lakeridge Health, we understand that. Our Orthopedic Surgery program is focused on improving your health so that you can enjoy a higher quality of life.

Our highly skilled team performs surgeries including hip and knee joint replacement, shoulder repair, cartilage repair and bone fractures.

If you are having shoulder pain or difficulty moving your shoulder you may be a good candidate for the Shoulder Centre.  Ask your family physician for more details.
