WHY THE NEED FOR A SPINE ASSESSMENT PROGRAM?
To address a critical delay in access to multidisciplinary assessment and management of patients with spinal diseases and injuries. Caleo Health has instituted a document review and assessment process to internally triage referrals.
The assessment process is designed to provide: single-site management of your condition(s), coordinate investigations and optimize care processes. We offer a continuum of care where patients are referred to the most appropriate healthcare provider for management and treatment.

Spine Assessment wait-times are based from the time the online registration process is fully completed and form submitted (including any necessary payment). Wait-times are subject to change from time to time due to volume of registered patients and availability of service providers.
Surgery wait-times are based form the time you see the surgeon and sign consent for surgery.
Surgical Consult and Surgery wait-times are based on the availability of the surgeon, the urgency of the case and OR resources available through Alberta Health Services. Wait-times are subject to change from time to time due to volume of patients and available resources.
