General Surgery

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare provides inpatient and outpatient surgery in the areas of general surgery, ENT (ear, nose & throat), gynaecological surgery, obstetrics, ophthalmology (eye), urology, OHIP-covered plastic surgery, as well as a Surgeon's Clinic for minor procedures.  Advanced and sophisticated equipment aids in the process and includes:

  • Three endoscopy suites (for minimally invasive diagnoses using an endoscope)
  • A specially designed, dedicated suite for ophthalmologic (eye) laser treatments
  • State-of-the-art imaging table for urological procedures

Approximately 90% of patients receive surgery through the Surgical Day Care Unit (SDC). This is a convenient and effective process for patients. Patients are admitted into day surgery in the morning, undergo surgery, are monitored during recovery and return home - all on the same day.


Your family physician will refer you to a surgeon, and you will be notified by the surgeon's office of your scheduled surgery details.

Hours of Operation

Surgeries and procedures are scheduled Monday to Friday, from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  We provide support for emergencies 24/7.


Family support is an essential part of recovery.  Surgical Services recommends and encourages at least one family member to be available, both before and after a procedure.  Patient and family needs are considered throughout the stay.  Safe, comfortable care is our priority.
