“Cast” Clinic

The Cast Clinic (previously the Outpatient Department Clinic or OPD) is where we follow-up with patients after surgery, as well as patients who have been treated non-surgically, but requiring repeat assessment (such as distal radius fractures).                        

We do not accept patients for referral to our Cast Clinic without direct communication with an orthopedic surgeon.  

If you have a patient who:

  • Has an acute injury not immediately requiring surgery
  • Does not require an urgent orthopedic consultation (within a week or so):

Contact the orthopedic surgeon on call.  He or she may request the patient follow up in Cast Clinic.

You must then fax a complete referral letter to 403-986-7258. 
  • Include:
  • Patient’s name
  • Patient’s contact number
  • Presumptive diagnosis
  • Any relevant imaging 
  • Name of the referring practitioner
  • Name of the orthopedic surgeon accepting the referral
  • Time frame for follow-up
  • Cast Clinic Referral Form.pdf

Your patient will then be contacted and will be given a date and time for follow-up.
