SEMI Has Highly Qualified Orthopaedic Surgeons on Staff

Orthopaedic surgeons diagnose and treat a wide variety of problems related to bones, joints, muscles and tendons. Although SEMI employs a number of non- operative modalities such as physiotherapy, bracing and injections, consideration for surgery remains the primary reason for referral. In most cases the decision to go ahead with Orthopaedic surgery rests with the patient, although orthopaedic surgeons may recommend the procedure as the best option.

Orthopaedic surgeons complete a 4-year residency program followed in some cases by subspecialty training in a field of their particular interest. For example, our resident orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Stephen Reed, spent 6 months in Toronto working specifically with joint replacement surgeons at the Orthopaedic and Arthritic Hospital, followed by 6 months in Brisbane, Australia working with a sports medicine surgeon and developing his ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) repair technique. Finally, he spent 6 months again at the Orthopaedic and Arthritic Hospital doing shoulder reconstruction before starting his practice.

Consultation with our orthopaedic surgeon requires referral from a primary care physician or a sports medicine doctor. Having investigations such as X-rays and MRI scans completed prior to your orthopaedic consultation is extremely useful and helps expedite diagnosis and treatment. In addition, having tried non-operative therapies such as physiotherapy and injection before seeing a surgeon makes the decision to opt for surgery during your orthopaedic consultation more straightforward. Such preparation is usually organised by your sports medicine specialist.
