WE'RE PATIENT-CENTERED

ORIK is a unique facility that offers approaches and expertise which are unmatched by other clinics within Peterborough and the surrounding area

T he Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Institute – Kawartha was founded by a multidisciplinary group who had a vision to create a practice unlike any other: one that is driven by academic, evidence-based treatment protocols, equality and individualized patient care. ORIK's founders include three sub-specialized Orthopaedic Surgeons and an Advanced Practice Physiotherapist. The physicians and health care providers at ORIK focus on treating upper and lower extremity injuries, as well as chronic bone and joint conditions.

Evidence-based Treatment Protocols
An evidence-based approach ensures that there must always be a sufficient amount of data to support the use of the treatment protocols that we create for our patients. We first begin with an assessment, which is performed by one of the members of our multidisciplinary team. Thereafter, upon receiving a diagnosis, patients are placed on an evidence-based rehabilitation protocol. This comprehensive approach is what is unique about our practice. It enables our physicians to not only provide patients with a full understanding of the risks, benefits, and expectations at the start of their treatment, but it also allows the

Equality
At ORIK, all patients are treated equally. We understand how stressful it can be to deal with a serious injury, so we place a great deal of importance upon being at your side and remain focused on maximizing your chances for a successful recovery.

Individualized Patient Care
At ORIK, we are patient-centered. Treatment protocols are always individualized and regardless of how many patients we treat, our team of physicians and health care providers, therapists and specialists are always in regular contact with patients and their referring physicians. We truly aim to quarterback your recovery.
