COVID-19 Update

Please note, appointments are being offered at the Orthopedic Assessment Centres.   If it is an urgent or emergency referral, the on-call surgeon should be notified at the appropriate hospital as per the usual process.  Thank you for your patience during this challenging time. 



Orthopedic Central Intake


Improved access to Medical Specialists is part of the overall System Coordinated Access Initiative in the region of Waterloo Wellington. 


Central Intake for Orthopedics offers a single point of contact for physicians or nurse practitioners to refer any/all non-emergency Orthopedic services.  One standard referral form provides consistency to ensure a complete referral as well as to provide data collection to support system improvement. 


All referrals are reviewed for completeness and sent to either the preferred orthopedic surgeon or the most appropriate orthopedic surgeon, based on the patient home address and primary problem area.
