Total Joint Replacement Program

The outpatient total joint replacement program at Women’s College Hospital is a unique collaborative aiming to deliver effective, efficient, and patient-centered care for individuals with hip and knee arthritis. Ideal surgical candidates are motivated patients with well-controlled medical co-morbidities and strong social supports. Patients must live in the Greater Toronto Area to be eligible for same-day discharge.

This innovative program includes pioneering perioperative anaesthesia care and the use of interactive home patient monitoring.

Each surgeon holds a faculty appointment within the Division of Orthopaedics at the University of Toronto.
