Quebec-RAMQ: changes

Please read if you are currently on our wait list or looking for government (RAMQ) covered surgery

The provincial government has mandated that all RAMQ covered surgeries must be scheduled solely by the hospital’s admissions office.

What does this mean?

  1. ALL inquiries related to your surgery must now be directed to the admissions office at the hospital.
  2. You will no longer have the flexibility to choose a convenient surgery date. Should you refuse or delay the date given to you 2 times, your name is removed from the wait list and your file is closed. You will have to see your surgeon again and your name will be automatically placed at the end of the wait list.
  3. If you delay your surgery for more than 6 months, your name is removed from the wait list and your file is closed.
  4. Unfortunately we no longer have any control to ensure that your surgery is scheduled in the order in which you were seen in our office.

For all questions, please call the admissions office for the CIUSSS du nord-de-l’île-de-Montréal at 514-338-2222.

As a result of these strict government guidelines, we are no longer accepting new RAMQ covered patients. We are not able to offer the high standard of care that has defined our practice and helped establish ourselves as leader in the field of breast and body contouring. We stand by our high quality of care and will not provide a lesser service to our beloved patient base.

For private surgery solutions, please call our office at 514-933-3449
