I just had knee surgery today to repair my meniscus.

I just had knee surgery today to repair my meniscus. I am so grateful to have had the surgery through private care!

The team taking care of me were incredibly professional, compassionate, and caring. This high level of quality patient care is the right for BC residents to have access to. If people want to pay for care they should have the right to access this service and avoid further bogging down wait times in hospitals. My family doctor even suggested I go through private care due to the lengthy wait times and the negative impact on my quality of life that would ensue from it. British Columbians should have access to this level of care. It is their right.
