Arrange for an Examination or Operation

Scheduling your operation

Once the surgeon has recommended a hernia repair, our office will schedule your operation. We will make every effort to book your operation on a date that suits your schedule.

Ontario - Option 1

If you think you have a hernia and you live within a 1-hour drive or 100 km (60 miles) of Toronto, you should come to our walk-in clinic for a personal examination by one of our hernia surgeons.

  • You do NOT need a doctor’s referral to come to our walk-in clinic.
  • Patients are not required to pay for examinations. They are covered by provincial health insurance.

Next steps: After examining you at the clinic or reviewing your Medical Questionnaire, the surgeon will make a diagnosis and decide if a hernia repair is necessary or if further information is required. For those who have not been seen in our clinic, and have submitted their completed Medical Questionnaire for assessment,  you will be contacted within 2 to 3 days with our recommended course of action.

Ontario - Option 2

If you live more than 100 km (60 miles) simply follow the instructions intended for non-Ontario Residents and complete the medical consultation form.

Whenever possible, we recommend that you visit our clinic for a diagnosis.

Your symptoms may not be caused by a hernia or you may have a health condition that should be managed before surgery. An accurate diagnosis by an experienced hernia surgeon is the best way to find out if you really need a hernia operation.

If you prefer, you can also print the forms on your printer and mail or fax (905-889-4216) them to our office. However, nothing is better than a doctor’s examination.

In some cases, we cannot schedule your operation until certain requirements are met:

  • If you have a chronic medical condition, we may ask your doctor to send us a report on your medical history.
  • If you are overweight, you may be asked to lose weight before your operation. We offer a diet counseling service to help you reach your weight loss goals and “get in shape” for your operation.
