Surgical Services | Timely Medical

Keywords: Waiting Lists

For many of our clients, the waits for general
surgery are lengthy. While orthopedic,
oncological, cataract and coronary procedures
get all the attention in the media and therefore receive the vast bulk of new infusions of cash into the system, patients who require procedures other than those listed above are the “forgotten patients” in our monopolistic healthcare system. The pain suffered by patients awaiting a hernia repair can be just as severe (or more so) than a patient waiting for a knee replacement, but because a hernia isn’t a “targeted” ailment, they often don’t get the attention they warrant. In the last 24 months, due to increased resources, being targeted at other types of surgery, the waiting lists for general surgery have significantly increased. Simply  on whichever procedure you require on the left side of this page to learn more.

MRI’s | Timely Medical

It is less commonly used than CT-scans mainly because MRI machines are extremely expensive and, as a result, there aren’t enough of them to meet demand in Canada’s public health care system. The abbreviation MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging and refers to the machine’s ability to create pictures of the inside of your body, using magnets and radio waves.
