Orthopaedic Surgery
Message from the Section Head

The Section of Orthopaedic Surgery was established at the University of Manitoba in 1907 with Dr. H.P.H. Galloway as the first Section Head.

The Section of Orthopaedic Surgery operates out of five main sites within the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority:

  • Health Sciences Centre
  • Children’s Hospital
  • Pan Am Clinic
  • Victoria Hospital
  • Concordia Hospital

The Section comprises of 25 full-time members, 15 residents and 8 Fellows.  Specialties include Spine, Arthroplasty, Foot and Ankle, Hand, Sports, Trauma, Upper Extremity, Lower Extremity and Paediatrics.

Orthopaedic Academic Days have been fortunate to have world-class visiting professors.  In 2014, we had Dr. Ross Leighton from Halifax and in 2013, we had Dr. Richard Berger from the Mayo Clinic Hand Service.  In 2015, we are expecting Dr. Charles Fisher from the University of British Columbia Spine Service on September 30th. These continue to be landmark events for our faculty, fellows and residents. 

The Orthopaedic Skills Labs have been very successful for our residents and faculty.  In 2014, we had Visiting Professors Dr. Mike Stuart from Mayo Clinic and Dr. Misty Suri from New Orleans.  In 2015, we had Dr. Tony Romeo from Chicago and Dr. Peter Lapner from Ottawa.

We are very proud that our residents have been distinguished in the top presentation awards at our Department of Surgery Annual Research Days.  We are also pleased that Dr. Mohit Bhandari, Academic Division Head for Orthopaedic Surgery at McMaster University was part of the Department's Annual Research Day in 2014 as the Keynote Speaker and Dr. Mike McKee, Associate scientist in the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute of St. Michael's Hospital with the University of Toronto, was a Visiting Professor at the Department of Surgery Grand Rounds.

Orthopaedic research continues to improve on multiple fronts.  In 2014, Orthopaedic Surgery was awarded the Best Research Section in the Department of Surgery.

Our Section continues to grow and deliver forward thinking through exciting and innovative research initiatives that are benefiting patient care, residents and other stakeholders in the Orthopaedic and academic communities.  Thank you to our faculty who tirelessly give to make this Section one of the most well-rounded and stable Orthopaedic Sections in the country.

We look forward to exciting times in the future!

We are pleased to share with you our 2013/2014 Annual Yearbook
