Re: Any Canadians with/had a hip labral tear here? [soya]
OK so I'm just creeping this thread. As many of you may know, I'm a knee specialist in the GTA. Couldn't help but comment on hip arthroscopy. The real reason very few Canadians do the surgery (and the reason Marc Phillipon, a Canadian, went to the US) is that the payment here is horrible. We used to get $300 to do the surgery while Marc charges $12,000. Welcome to socialized healthcare!
The pay schedule just changed and Ontario surgeons are now getting up to $1000 for the surgery so more guys are doing it.
The guys with the most experience with hip scopes in southern Ontario are Doug Naudie in London, Femi Ayeni in Hamilton and Mark Ginty in Oakville. I don't know about Dr Murnaghans hip scope training, but he is an overall superb surgeon technically (and he is a nice guy too).
Hope that helps somewhat.
