Pan Am Clinic Surgeons
What We Do
While orthopaedists may perform surgery to restore function lost as a result of injury or disease of bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments, they are also involved in all aspects of health care pertaining to the musculoskeletal system.
They combine medical, physical and rehabilitative approaches to complement their surgical techniques.
The emphasis at Pan Am Clinic is on hand surgery, non-elective (medically necessary) cosmetic surgery and surgery for minor skin lesions. Some of the traumatic hand injuries from the Health Sciences Centre are referred to the Pan Am Clinic and are done on an urgent basis in the operating room. Other referrals are generated through the Minor Injury Clinic and from the Primary Care Sport Medicine Physicians. Some of the hand surgeries are done in conjunction with the Orthopaedic subsection of Hand.
