Do you have a Shoulder Issue?
The Shoulder Centre was built to quickly diagnose and treat injuries and problems of the shoulder girdle. A community of shoulder experts will review your consult, ask for additional information and book your appointment. We aim to provide you with a treatment plan within 6-8 weeks including ordering any other tests you might need such as an MRI. If required, five surgeons are prepared to evaluate and treat you.
Who is a Shoulder Expert?
Shoulder Experts are care providers who are affiliated with and trained by The Shoulder Centre, who provide care for shoulder problems in their community. The Shoulder Centre provides guidance, training and mentorship to all interested providers who want to treat shoulder problems. Some Shoulder Experts work within the physical space of The Shoulder Clinic but others are embedded within their own communities and provide care for patietns close to their home. Our goal is to build a Shoulder Care Community that improves shoulder care through evidence-based approaches, collaboration, and innovation.
Where is the The Shoulder Centre?
The Shoulder Centre is located at Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering hospital, however, the bricks and mortar fall short of describing the community of care concept that defines us. The Shoulder Centre reaches out into the Central-East LHIN wherever Shoulder Experts practice. We plan to provide the same access to all patients no matter where they live through the development and impliementation of electronic resources to improve communication with primary care providers. Surgeries, when necessary, are performed at Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering Hospital and Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital.
