Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians, staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make the most of our resources.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international source for discovery, education and patient care.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. Learn more about the services, programs and amenities offered at each location.

We provide complex joint replacements, foot and ankle care, fracture repair and minimally invasive reconstructive surgery to patients from across Ontario, including elite athletes and patients in under-serviced northern regions. An integral part of the Arthritis Program, the Division consists of 10 surgeons providing care for Ontarians with complex musculoskeletal disorders, with a specific focus on arthritis.
We treat more than 2,200 inpatients and 35,000 outpatients annually and the Division has the largest volume of complex joint replacement surgeries in the Greater Toronto Area. Utilizing the most current technology and specializing in handling complex cases, we act as a referral centre for orthopedic patients from across the province and country.
Our team of surgeons works with nurses, physiotherapists and other health care workers in the pre-operative, operative and post-operative stages, ensuring patients receive the proper attention through all phases of their treatment. With a patient-centred approach our goal is to return patients to their everyday activities as soon as possible.
We are ...
Research fuels our high-quality patient care, as the Orthopedic Surgery Division works to better understand arthritis and other conditions that affect the joints. Our surgeons are actively involved in leading-edge orthopedic research – both clinical studies and basic science research – and are committed to bringing improved techniques and treatments to patients.
We are committed to scientific and clinical impact in improving care for arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, and the proximity of basic researchers and clinician-scientists provides the full spectrum of expertise required to make discoveries in basic, translational and clinical research. We continue to strive to establish ourselves as the premier hospital for all arthritis research.
Through our collaboration with the medical school at the University of Toronto, we are fostering the development of the best surgical leaders of tomorrow. We are one of North America's largest teaching centres for orthopedic surgeons, giving medical students a unique hands-on education experience. Not only do interns and fellows learn the latest surgical techniques, but their research skills are also honed with the goal that they one day lead medical discovery.

You will be contacted with information about your first appointment.
Please bring the following to your appointment. Not all of these items may be needed for your appointment. Our clinic or your referring doctor will let you know what you must bring.
Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment.
When you arrive, you will sign in with the receptionist. You will need your health card (OHIP card) to sign-in. If you do not have an OHIP card, please bring another form of government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport.
You may be given a Measuring Health Equity Questionnaire to fill out. This form contains questions about your background. We collect this information to find out who we serve and what unique needs you may have. The form is voluntary and you can choose ‘prefer not to answer’ to any or all questions. However, the information you choose to give us will help us improve the quality of care for you and others.
First appointments take longer than follow-up appointments. Your first appointment can take 2 hours or more. Follow-up appointments usually take 15 to 30 minutes. We do everything we can to stay on time but sometimes unforeseen circumstances may delay your appointment.
At the end of your first appointment, the nurse or doctor will give you a contact list for your health care team. If you don’t get a contact list, feel free to ask for it.
After every appointment, a member of your health care team will tell you about your next visit. Be sure you understand what is going to happen next. For example, know the time and place of your next visit or if someone will call you with this information.
If you are unsure about what your next steps are, don’t be afraid to ask a member of your team. We are here to help you.
We understand that reaching us by phone can sometimes be difficult. Often our phone lines are busy or are turned over to the message centre so our staff can prepare for clinic visits or help other patients. We make every effort to return your call within 24 hours. Our staff will try to reach you 2 times. If we are not able to reach you directly you may need to call us again.
