Calgary Zone hip and knee arthroplasty programs November 7, 2018
The Calgary Zone has a centralized intake model for accepting referrals for hip and knee surgical assessment. Central Intake supports fair and equitable wait times for all patients.
There are two centers for intake, one at the South Health Campus Bone and Joint Clinic and the other at the Alberta Hip and Knee Clinic at Gulf Canada Square. These two centers support all of the Calgary Zone orthopaedic arthroplasty surgeons regardless of the site at which the surgery is performed. The two clinics share referral lists and have comparable wait times.
Referrals for hip or knee arthroplasty through central triage can be sent to the "Next Available" surgeon or as a direct referral to a specified surgeon. Wait times to a specific surgeon tend to be longer than the "next available" queue. If a patient's condition changes, please resubmit the referral with the relevant changes or contact the clinic to which the patient has been referred. The referral update will be reviewed by a surgeon and any re-triaging or changes to patient status will be communicated back to the referring agent.
If surgery is required, all bookings occur through the central OR booking process for AHS facilities and the wait time for surgery starts at the time a surgeon sends the booking to the facility. This OR booking process is the same regardless of the referring agent, and regardless if it is originally a direct referral or through the "next available" process.
If you have any questions please contact Dr. Jason Werle.
