Reopening of Duval Orthopaedic Clinic in Canada

MONTREAL, March 18, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Duval Orthopaedic Clinic is ready to welcome clients back to their newly renovated facilities. Lead by Dr. Duval and Dr. Lavoie, Duval Orthopaedic Clinic is the only private clinic to offer total knee and hip surgeries in Canada.  Patients receive top-quality orthopaedic surgeries in addition to a supervised stay in a convalescence centre and physiotherapy sessions which enable them to get back to enjoying life.

The need for orthopaedic surgeries is growing
An aging population, high obesity rates and osteoarthritis are contributing to the increasing need for Canadians to undergo knee and hip surgeries. The Quebec government found that hundreds of Montreal patients are waiting at least 6-months for a joint replacement and the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) also found that these wait times have not declined despite provincial efforts.

As hospitals are struggling to meet Canadians' demands for orthopaedic surgeries, patients are more than ever motivated to seek alternate health care solutions according to the CIHI.  Another top concern voiced by Canadians is the quality and sustainability of the public health care system which explains the growing demand for private services.
