The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery at McMaster University has a history of excellence in orthopaedic research and education. Our strategy is simple—to be responsible to our patients by providing exemplary patient care, using best evidence to guide our decisions, and leading innovation in education and research.

Our vision is to improve lives of patients with musculoskeletal disease through the paradigm of evidence-based orthopaedics. By carrying out this vision at every level of our Division, we will be recognized by our patients, our learners, our faculty and our community as the best orthopaedic surgical program in the nation.

From our local and global research, faculty, education, and alumni, we hope to bridge together a solid pathway for orthopaedic surgeons and researchers alike to collaborate and grow together as leaders, mentors, and role models in evidence-based orthopaedics.

With our vision and values aligned, our Division will continue to generate lifelong learners that practice orthopaedic surgery in a responsible, ethical, and evidence-based manner.
