About the Surrey Comprehensive Orthopaedics Group
The Surrey Comprehensive Orthopaedics (SCO) is a group of ten orthopaedic surgeons in Surrey, BC.
The group was founded over 30 years ago and now provides comprehensive care ranging from joint replacements or revisions, sports injury care, spinal surgery to trauma surgery.
Our orthopaedic surgeons hold operating privileges at Surrey Memorial Hospital and the Jim Pattison Outpatient Centre. There are three surgeons who no longer perform surgeries but provide assessments and non-surgical treatments. If an assessment shows a need for a surgery, patients will be given an expedited referral to a practicing orthopaedic surgeon in the group.
Rather than referrals to single orthopaedic surgeons in Surrey, the SCO has launched a central intake process to streamline the process and reduce wait times.
The surgeons meet weekly to discuss new referrals and assign them to the next available orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in the area. Together they discuss complex care scenarios and best practices. The close working environment allows for mentorship of newer surgeons and collaboration to provide optimal care.
