Hip and Knee Pathway

Knee X-RayThe Saskatchewan Hip and Knee Pathway improves the quality of care and shortens wait times for patients considering hip or knee replacement surgery. Multi-disciplinary hip and knee clinics ensure that patients are properly assessed, and use a shared decision making process to help the patient choose the treatment option that is best for them. Patients who choose surgery are given the opportunity to prepare for surgery, and understand what to expect after surgery – reducing stress and speeding up recovery. The clinics also help identify patients who may not need surgery.

Referrals

Family doctors and nurse practitioners can refer patients directly to the Multidisciplinary Clinics in Moose Jaw or Prince Albert by using the physician referral form..

In Regina and Saskatoon, surgical referral is required.

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 team of health care specialists dedicated to improve 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 up recovery.

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

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