On rare occasions, hip and knee surgeries are performed at other Winnipeg facilities on an emergency basis. For this reason, the total number of surgeries performed in Winnipeg may exceed the sum of the surgeries performed at the individual facilities listed here.

Median wait time: The point at which half the patients have had their treatment, and the other half are still waiting. For example, if a median wait time is 4 weeks, this means that half of the patients waited less than 4 weeks, and half waited more than 4 weeks. The median is another way of reflecting what a "typical" patient might have experienced in that time period. Unlike the average, the median is not generally influenced by one or two very unusual cases (long or short), and is therefore more stable over time.

Some facilities show longer median wait times. However, this is not an indication that all patients wait longer for hip and knee surgery at those sites.
