A new image guidance system is helping surgeons pinpoint locations in the body with precise accuracy for procedures such as pinpointing a brain tumour of finding an exact insertion spot of a spinal screw thanks to a $230,000 grant from the Health Sciences Foundation. This level of precision means less damage to healthy tissue during surgery resulting in better outcomes, reduced pain and shorter recovery times for patients.
Children are referred to the Paediatric Healthy Living Program by a Paediatrician. The Paediatric Healthy Living Program is a two-year family-based program focused on healthy lifestyles for children and youth ages 4-17 with complex obesity. The program’s goal is to help children and their families improve their eating habits, physical activity levels, emotional well-being and overall health. Our inter-professional team (Social Worker, Nurse Practitioner, Dietitian, Psychologist and Kinesiologist) work with paediatric patients and families to support healthy lifestyle goals through individual assessment, counseling and group-based education.
