The Regional Joint Assessment Centre (RJAC):
helps adults with hip and knee problems that cause pain and difficulty moving. The Program was developed as part of the Ontario Ministry of Health's Wait List strategy to improve access to joint replacement surgery and improve the care of osteoarthritis
One of the main reasons that people have hip or knee pain is from arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and usually happens in weight bearing joints such as the hips and knees
What is really exciting about the program is that it provides "one stop shopping" for patients. Find out more here
If your knee or hip pain is stopping you from doing the activities you enjoy, we can help. Our goal is to work with you so that you can stay active and manage your pain. If you think you need to be seen for a hip or knee problem, talk to your doctor. Your doctor can refer you to the program.
