Welcome to the McGill University Division of Orthopaedic Surgery

The McGill Division of Orthopaedics is based at the Montreal General Hospital, which houses one of Quebec’s busiest Level I Trauma Centres, a Supra-Regional Centre for Musculoskeletal (MSK) Oncology and serves the professional athletes of three world class sports teams. More than 200 beds dedicated to adult and paediatric orthopaedic care are distributed between the Montreal General, Montreal Children's, Shriners, Jewish General and St. Mary's hospitals.

In 2010, a core administrative staff coordinated the activities of 31 orthopaedic surgeons, 9 fellows and 36 residents with a support staff of 23 clinical and 12 research coordinators. The clinical and research activities in Arthroplasty, MSK Oncology, Paediatrics, Spine, Sports and Trauma are complemented by translational research in labs across the McGill campus that include the Joe Miller Lab (MGH), the JTN Wong Lab (740 Penfield), the Orthopaedic Research Labs (RVH, LDI) and the Shriners-MCH.

From 2009-2010 these laboratories trained 43 individuals in projects ranging from fundamental mechanisms of bone development to advanced technology for bone repair. In the same period, members of the Division held funding from peer reviewed sources including AO Foundation, CIHR, US Department of Defense, FRSQ, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, NSERC, Orthopaedic Trauma Association and others and published more than 70 clinical and 50 basic scientific papers.
