In 2020, because of COVID-19, elective surgeries across the country were put on hold for months. An estimated 100,000 patients nationwide – including many in Ontario – had their surgeries delayed. Now, UHN’s surgical teams are working tirelessly to clear the backlog.
Despite the challenges COVID-19 has placed upon our healthcare system, the Sprott Department of Surgery remains Canada’s home for leading-edge surgical treatments.
The inaugural Sprott Department of Surgery magazine highlights the incredible breadth of surgical work being done across UHN, the impact on patients’ lives, and the world-leading innovations needed to perform some of the most challenging operations.
The Sprott Department of Surgery Magazine is available online here.
