Increased access and specialization in musculoskeletal services for the community

Along with community partners, Osler is introducing new services and innovative patient-inspired care delivery models to meet the health care needs of those who live in the Central West LHIN.  Osler's Musculoskeletal (MSK) Program includes a Muscoloskeletal Health Orthopaedic Surgical Screening Centre and a Rheumatology Early Arthritis Clinic.

Musculoskeletal Health Orthopaedic Surgical Screening Centre

The Centre will see adult patients with:

  • Shoulder arthritis/rotator cuff pathology, elbow arthritis/overuse pathology
  • Lumbar spine pathology, including herniated disks, spinal stenosis, and low back pain
  • Hip/knee orthopaedic pathology
  • Foot and ankle orthopaedic pathology

Please note:

  • Referrals are for non-cancer, non-acute, non-trauma-related issues.  If you have an acute fracture or infection, you should go directly to our Emergency Department.

  • This clinic will see patients with suspected rheumatoid arthritis
  • Other types of inflammatory arthritis can be referred to the Rheumatologist's office
  • This clinic provides adult-only rheumatology and will not screen pediatric cases.
