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.

A Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) is a test that takes pictures of the heart with the use of a flexible probe placed inside your esophagus. The heart is near the esophagus, and an ultrasound allows doctors to get very clear pictures of parts of the heart that are not well seen by a regular echocardiogram taken from outside your chest.
The pictures are displayed on the ultrasound monitor and are recorded on a disk. The TEE is performed and interpreted by a cardiologist, and it's valuable in checking various conditions, such as how bad disease may have affected heart valves and whether they need to be surgically repaired, or if there are blood clots or masses within the heart.
