Carlo Santaguida, MD, FRCS(C)
Dr. Carlo Santaguida is a spine neurosurgeon with a broad skill set ranging from minimally invasive surgery to complex deformity corrections. He emphasizes quality assurance and utilizes data collection to evaluate surgical and non-surgical management of patients to ensure patients maximize their potential to the best outcome possible. He is involved in the undergraduate Dean’s office and prioritizes all forms of education. He was integral in merging the McGill orthopedic and neurosurgery spine programs, which should greatly improve patient care and medical education. To address long wait times, Dr. Santaguida has developed a physiotherapist-led surgical triage process to reduce both wait times and MRI utilization while improving patient outcomes. He hopes that this program can serve as a model for all musculoskeletal-related pathology.
