Orthopedic Intake Clinic

Orthopedic Intake Clinic
PRHC’s Ortho Intake Clinic provides care to individuals with hip and/or knee arthritis. Patients will see a Nurse Practitioner and a Physiotherapist to determine if they are candidates for joint replacement surgery. Patients who are candidates for joint replacement will be booked to see an Orthopedic Surgeon. Patients with mild to moderate hip and knee arthritis receive treatment from our Nurse Practitioner and Physiotherapist. This can include cortisone injections, exercises, weight-loss counselling, and pain management strategies. The Ortho Intake Clinic helps to reduce the wait time for patients to see a surgeon for those who require hip and/or knee replacement surgery. Patients may be referred by a Physician or Nurse Practitioner.

Hours of Operation: Monday to Friday 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Contact Information: 705-743-2121 ext. 3203

This is an out-patient clinic for patients after they have been discharged from the hospital. Patients are encouraged to book their physiotherapy sessions in the physiotherapy clinic prior to their hip or knee surgery. This clinic provides weekly rehabilitation visits after surgery to assist patients with the progression of their daily home exercise programs and help them achieve their individual goals. This clinic is located on Level 4 of the hospital across from the cafeteria.
