Who we are:
The hip arthroscopy team at Women’s College Hospital entails four surgeons: Dr Danny Whelan, Dr Jas Chahal and Dr Tim Dwyer. Together, we form the largest hip arthroscopy centre in Canada.
Our goal is to provide rapid access and evidence-based management of young patients with labral tears of the hip, and femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI). Utilizing state-of-the-art arthroscopy operating rooms at Women’s College Hospital, we aim to provide timely and appropriate management of young patients with hip pain across the GTA, and the province of Ontario.
As part of the Young Adult Hip Innovation Program (YA-HIP), our goal is to advance the science, understanding, and management of labral tears, FAI. This includes nonoperative care utilizing evidence-based physiotherapy, online video exercise programs, injections (including biologics), and the latest in surgical techniques. All surgeons are affiliated with the University of Toronto, and we have a robust research program centered around the management of young adults with hip pathology.
Please fax patient referrals including patient demographics, medical history, a description of the injury with x-ray and MRI report directly to the surgeons office. Contact information for our surgeons is available on under the referrals tab.
