The average number of patients receiving ultrasound therapy in the Physiotherapy Department has doubled with the addition of a new ultrasound machine, thanks to Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant. Ultrasound therapy is given to patients before an operation to improve surgical outcomes, and after an operation to reduce scarring, improve mobility and reduce pain.
Volunteers will deliver the sealed email message within 24 hours of receiving it. Emails received on weekends and holidays will be delivered the next business day. Unfortunately, we cannot deliver email messages after a patient has been discharged from the Health Sciences Centre and gone home.
