Great news! Surgery has resumed at Humber Hospital!
However, we are currently capped at 80% of our "Pre-COVID" volumes. In addition, with minimal surgery done during the last 4 months, we are experiencing significant delays in scheduling surgery. We apologize for the delay – but understand that hospitals are attempting to mobilize resources and personnel redistributed for COVID, back to their normal occupations.
If you are coming for surgery, only 1 family member will be allowed to assist/drop off/pick up loved ones. When coming to the hospital, please continue to exercise caution, adhere to social distancing, and please wear a mask.
In hospital surgical consultations have resumed – but are also significantly backed up at this time. If you have a post-operative, or fracture clinic visit, know that these visits have also resumed as scheduled.
New referrals are continuing to be triaged if faxed to 416-636-8628.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Please note, wait times for a surgical opinion are between 7-8 months after receiving a consult from your family doctor or another orthopaedic surgeon.
Please note, surgical wait times are currently at 12-16 months from the time of booking once seen by Dr. Rodriguez-Elizalde.
We apologize for the delay, but recent news of the Direct Anterior Approach Total Hip Replacement has caused a surge of referrals and surgical bookings. If you currently have surgery booked with another orthopaedic surgeon within the next year, please do not cancel it.
We will likely not be able to process your request sooner. We look forward to being able to refer you to more orthopaedic surgeons who perform this technique soon.
