In a typical year, more than 35,000 surgical procedures are performed at the Sprott Department of Surgery at UHN. The Department has 13 divisions and 140 surgeons on staff, making it the largest surgical program in Canada.

In 2020, because of COVID-19, elective surgeries across the country were put on hold for months. An estimated 100,000 patients nationwide – including many in Ontario – had their surgeries delayed. Now, UHN's surgical teams are working tirelessly to clear the backlog.

Despite the challenges COVID-19 has placed upon our healthcare system, the Sprott Department of Surgery remains Canada's home for leading-edge surgical treatments.

The inaugural Sprott Department of Surgery magazine highlights the incredible breadth of surgical work being done across UHN, the impact on patients' lives, and the world-leading innovations needed to perform some of the most challenging operations.
