CALGARY – Patients seeking pre- and post-operative care at the city’s busiest hip and knee clinic have seen their wait times cut almost in half thanks to a wait-time reduction initiative jointly supported by Alberta Health Services (AHS) and other partners.

In a one-year period, the wait time between referral to the surgeon-owned Alberta Hip and Knee Clinic and initial consult has been reduced from five months to less than three months.
