Choose from the drop-down list below to see the wait time trend for each location. Wait times change over time for many reasons, including changes in the demand for services or how many services are being performed, operating room closures, staff shortages, equipment break downs, and changes in clinical practice based on the latest research. If you see a gap or missing period of data in the trend graph, the wait time was not available for that time period because there was a small number patients or because the Department of Health and Wellness did not receive the data.
You may notice there is a wide range of wait times for surgeons. Wait times are affected by many factors, including how much operating room time is available, how many new patients are referred to a surgeon, the urgency of a surgeon’s patients, and population demographics.
Based on records from the Patient Access Registry Nova Scotia (PAR NS) for surgical cases completed in an operating room, the following surgeons performed this procedure in the past year.
