Every year medical specialists have volunteered their time traveling to the Northern Medical Clinics in communities such as Cochrane and Kirkland Lake. This saves people in northern communities the time, trouble and expenses of travelling to see specialists and receive treatments.

March of Dimes Canada is pleased to announce that it will be conducting clinics in Cochrane and Kirkland Lake with a total of 9 specialists hosting these clinics during the month of September.

The September 9, 2016 clinic to be held in Cochrane will include:

  • Dr. Gladys Chan, foot and ankle surgeon from North York General Hospital 
  • Dr. Simon Harris, spine surgeon from Scarborough Hospital 
  • Dr. Shawn Garbedian, hip and knee surgeon from North York General Hospital 
The September 16, 2016 clinic in Cochrane has acquired the participation of:
  • Dr. Markku Nousiainen and his fellow, hip and knee surgeons from Sunnybrook Hospital 
The September 29 & 30, 2016 clinic will take place in Kirkland Lake. The specialists staffing this clinic will be:
  • Dr. Frank Mastrogiacomo, hip and knee surgeon from Toronto East General 
  • Dr. Dale Dantzer, upper extremities surgeon from North York General 
  • Dr. Syd Gershon, rheumatologist from St-Michael’s hospital 
  • Dr. David Collins, rheumatologist from Soldiers Memorial Hospital

Please see below for information about other clinics that will be held this year.

Supported by our staff, volunteers, host hospitals and various local organizations, the clinics have also received funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care through its Northern Health Programs and Planning Branch, as well as the Porcupine United Way.
