In Need of Knee Replacement, Knee Arthroscopy or Meniscus Repair?
Ask countless Canadians who suffer from a torn meniscus, damaged or missing knee cartilage or severe pain and swelling in their knees, and they’ll tell you that getting treatment or even a full knee replacement surgery within the Canadian healthcare system is a nightmare.
Many patients report waiting many months just to meet in consultation with an orthopedic surgeon, only to be told that they don’t qualify for knee replacement because their pain is supposedly not sufficiently severe.
The reason orthopedic knee surgeons in Canada might do this is because they know the reality of Canadian healthcare, which is that resources are scarce and waiting times are unreasonably long. But knee pain can significantly reduce your ability to walk properly and bend your knees, causing severe discomfort in your legs and also disrupt your lifestyle.
For Canadians who require knee replacement or a knee arthroscopy, waiting for help in Canada can make you feel like a prisoner in your own home. Timely Medical Alternatives can help by connecting you to different surgeons across Canada and the U.S. so that your pain goes away fast.
