Dr. Chan and Dr. Lapner specialize in the surgical and non-surgical care of patients with conditions of the hand, wrist, and upper extremities. Wait times to see Dr. Chan and Dr. Lapner vary. The wait time may be up to one year, but can vary depending upon the urgency of the problem. Dr. Chan and Dr. Lapner see public patients at our clinic in Servus Place and the Sturgeon Hospital in St. Albert.
If you are being seen in the public system, you will require a referral from your family physician or physiotherapist (which can be done by one of our qualified physiotherapists).
Dr. Chan and Dr. Lapner will manage your care following surgery, whether you are looked after in the public system or privately. As well, Dr. Chan and Dr. Lapner will remain in close contact with your physiotherapist during the course of your rehabilitation following surgery, which can be done at any one of our five clinic locations with our qualified physiotherapists.
