On behalf of all the staff at the Holland Centre, we would like to welcome you. Part of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, the Holland Centre is one of the largest hip and knee joint replacement centres in Canada, performing over 2,100 procedures annually. It is the first government-designated Hip and Knee Replacement Centre of Excellence in Canada, and is leading innovation in care models and alternate care provider roles. It is also at the forefront of new surgical procedures such as less invasive hip and knee replacement surgery. These leading edge procedures mean less pain, faster recovery and a shorter hospital stay for patients.
