Musculoskeletal Central Intake and Assessment for Hip & Knee and Low Back Pain
The Musculoskeletal Central Intake and Assessment Centre (MSK CIAC) will provide you with a timely assessment of your hip, knee or low back pain condition.
MSK CIAC is one point of contact for all assessments for primary hip and knee arthroplasty (joint replacement surgery) referrals and low back pain referrals in the HNHB LHIN.
The HNHB LHIN includes Hamilton, Niagara, Haldimand, Brant, Burlington and most of Norfolk county.
Patients are booked for an assessment with a target wait time of 4 weeks. The Advanced Practice Provider will discuss treatment options with you and come up with a personal plan that is right for you.
Primary care physicians refer patients to central intake, using our standard hip & knee or low back pain referral forms.
