Manitoba's New Surgical Backlog Plan

New Surgical Backlog Plan

WINNIPEG - The Manitoba government has announced its latest plan to deal with a growing backlog of surgeries and medical tests.

Health minister Audrey Gordon says orthopedics at Concordia Hospital will be expanded by the end of the year, including an extra operating room and another surgeon.

She believes this will allow for up to 1,000 more surgical procedures every year.

The province is also increasing funding at the Spine Assessment Clinic by $400,000 so more Manitobans can get treatment for their back pain.
