Knee Surgery

You may have been putting off treatment for knee pain because you hope it will go away on its own, think you’ll need to leave Canada, or don’t want to wait months and months just to get a diagnosis. The board-certified orthopedic surgeons at Clearpoint Health Network can help you get back into life by seeing you quickly. People from Calgary, Alberta; Vancouver, British Columbia; Winnipeg, Manitoba; and other cities outside Ontario often have a consultation within a week and surgery within a month at one of our private, state-of-the-art centres. Whether you need knee arthroscopy, ACL repair, or knee replacement surgery, our specialists in Toronto are ready to provide world-class medical care in Canada with expertise and compassion.

When should I see a doctor for knee pain?

While knee pain is common among adults, you should seek medical care if it:

  • Was caused by a sudden injury
  • Is impacting your mobility
  • Has not resolved with ice, rest, physical therapy, and other standard measures

Our board-certified surgeons use minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat knee pain for optimal accuracy and outcomes.

How much does knee surgery cost at your private clinics in Canada?

Every patient is different, and each knee surgery we perform is customized to the patient’s unique needs. Because of this variability, we cannot provide cost ranges on our website. The best way to receive a cost estimate for your potential surgery is to contact one of our patient coordinators. Our financing options may be helpful for qualified patients.

Where will my knee surgery take place?

Our doctors perform surgical procedures at Clearpoint Health Network’s private, accredited surgical centres across Canada. While you may need to have your surgery in another province, you will not have+ to leave Canada.

How long is recovery after knee surgery?

While procedures and patient experiences vary, recovery after knee surgery generally involves some degree of bruising, numbness, stiffness, achiness, and/or swelling initially. Post-op pain varies with procedures and level of fitness before surgery; it can usually be managed with prescription or over-the-counter pain medication. It is important to contact us if you have concerns.

Significant milestones generally include:

Walk with assistance:

4 to 6 weeks using a brace, crutches, walker, or cane

Return to normal activities:

  • Knee replacement: 2 to 4 months
  • ACL surgery: 6 to 9 months
  • Arthroscopic knee surgery: varies with the specifics of the surgery

Return to full activities:

  • Knee replacement: within 6 months
  • ACL surgery: full activities within a year
  • Arthroscopic knee surgery: varies with the specifics of the surgery

Engage in physiotherapy:

4 to 12 months, depending on the specifics of the surgery and individual factors

How do I schedule a consultation with an orthopedist who specializes in knee surgery?

Our surgeons conduct initial consultations via telephone or video conference. The first step is to have a pre-qualification call with a patient coordinator who will determine if you could benefit from our services. If so, the patient coordinator will ask you about your concerns and then review:

  • Incision techniques
  • Locations for your surgery (you may need to travel to another province)
  • Procedure costs
  • Possible risks and complications
  • Payment options

Our healthcare team will require your X-ray images and/or MRIs, along with some basic medical history, in order to appropriately prepare for your consultation.
