Unless your surgery is an emergency, you have some options when it comes to choosing a surgeon.
Some surgeons have more patients waiting for surgery than others. If you want to have your surgery as soon as possible, you and your family doctor can access information which provides the names of the surgeons most likely able to perform your surgery sooner than others.
The Soonest Surgery Tool is based on statistics gathered for the Ministry of Health Surgical Wait Times website . The results change regularly based on the number of patients referred to each surgeon and the availability of operating rooms.
How you can use this tool
Talk to your surgeon and ask for a second opinion.
