GHC connects you to the following options for Orthopedic Surgery:
Total Knee Replacement Surgery
Total knee replacement surgery or TKR is a procedure that replaces a severely damaged knee joint with an artificial knee joint. Knees become damaged for a number of reasons; including arthritis and injury.
Symptoms may include severe pain or stiffness that limits everyday activities, knee pain while resting, inflammation or swelling that doesn't improve with medication, and deformity.
Keep in mind the option of arthroscopic surgery, a procedure that removes damaged cartilage. A total knee replacement cannot help you if you have inflammatory arthritis or certain other degenerative processes.
Knee resurfacing replaces the worn-out compartments of the knee instead of the entire knee. There are no pre-manufactured parts or implants involved. A positive aspect of knee resurfacing is that the surgeon does not have to remove as much bone as it would have with a knee replacement.
Meniscus Arthroscopy Surgery
A very common surgery, this procedure is required when cartilage in the knee has been torn. While athletes playing contact sports in particular are at risk, anyone at any age can tear a meniscus. Arthroscopic surgery pinpoints the location of damage and minimizes incisions, therefore improving recovery time. Arthroscopic surgery has evolved to precisely pinpoint the location of damage and minimize incisions, which improves recovery time.
ACL surgery is the repair or reconstruction of the ligament in the center of your knee. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) keeps your shin bone (tibia) in place. A tear of this ligament can cause your knee to give way during physical activity.
Total Hip Replacement Surgery
If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, a fracture, or other conditions, common activities such as walking or getting in and out of a chair may be painful or difficult. Hip replacement surgery may relieve your pain, increase motion and help you to get back to enjoying everyday activities.
A THR or Total Hip Replacement rebuilds a deteriorated or damaged hip joint to make it more functional. The damaged joint is replaced with an artificial prosthesis.
Hip resurfacing replaces the arthritic surface of the hip joint but removes less bone then a traditional hip replacement.
This procedure is often recommended to younger individuals who may need a second hip replacement surgery as they grow older and wear out their artificial hip replacement. Resurfacing eliminates the problem of loosening of the prosthetic, and preserves bone in the event of a required revision surgery.
Rotator Cuff Repair
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that form a cuff over the shoulder joint. These muscles and tendons hold the arm in its "ball and socket" joint and help the shoulder to rotate. These tendons can be torn from overuse or injury.
A Shoulder Replacement is just what it sounds like: replacing of the shoulder with artificial parts.

What our clients say
"Flexibility is very good..."
" I am very happy with the surgery Dr. Greig performed on my hip. My flexibility is very good and strength is coming. I have been on my bike on two easy rides on gentle trails and golfed nine holes twice using a power cart! The surgery site is less sensitive and I can even lie on that side now. I have recommended GHC and Dr. Grieg to many people."
- Doug S, Hip Replacement Client; Canada
"They're really listening..."
"When I first got there, I had my doubts...what did we do? We're in another country? But within 10 minutes after talking to staff I felt better, because they're really listening to you!"
- Peter K, Hip Replacement Client; Canada
"They actually care..."
"In Mexico they actually care. Never in a million years would you get this kind of care in Canada. It was always the same medical staff we saw, they were all great, and you could tell they're happy to be there. Dr. Max is great, we saw him several times, he's even phoned to see if I'm ok. I was immobile for TWO YEARS and can finally manage my pain."- Peter K, Hip Replacement Client; Canada
