Hip and Knee Assessment and Treatment

Knee X-RaySaskatchewan has a care pathway for people with hip and knee osteoarthritis who may need joint replacement surgery. Patients are referred to a Multi-Disciplinary Clinic where they are assessed and care options discussed. Patients choosing a surgical option learn what to expect before, during and after surgery. When surgery is not the preferred option, the clinics also help patients access non-surgical care in the community. Clinics are located in Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert, and Moose Jaw.

Hip and Knee Pathway Clinics

Multi-disciplinary clinics assess patients who may need a hip or knee replacement. The clinics:

  • Offer a standard patient assessment process.

  • Provide consultations with an experienced health care team dedicated to improving patients’ quality of life and health.

  • Confirm patients’ need for surgery and provide surgical consults and surgical bookings (if patient is a surgical candidate).

  • Provide faster referral to specialists and surgeons.

  • Provide patient education, educational sessions, and take-home information to prepare patients for surgery.

  • Follow up with patients after surgery to speed recovery.

  • Offer access to community partners, other health professionals, and ongoing follow-up and support.

Clinics provide earlier access to assessment, education, and preparation for surgery. This results in higher quality patient care and more streamlined, standardized services.
