“In this report, CIHI reports on trends in the number of people having surgeries within first ministers’ wait times priority areas (cancer, heart, joint replacement and sight restoration) as well as trends in the number of people who had surgery for other reasons (outside priority areas). This augments and updates information previously released in 2007 and 2008. This report addresses the following questions:

  • Has there been sustained growth in priority procedures?
  • Have there been repercussions in other parts of the health care system related to the focus on priority area surgery?
  • Has the increase in priority area surgery yielded benefits beyond reduced wait times?”
