You Can Get Private GYN Surgery When The System Has Failed You
One of the most common calls we get are from women regarding GYN issues. This is one area where the system fails women over and over again, especially for GYN oncology. Women have been underserved and failed for many years in every province.
Currently, British Columbia only has 8 GYN oncologists for the entire province. That is 1 doctor for every 637,000 people! Vancouver Island has a population of 865,000, and a population growth of about 1% each year, however, has only had 2 for the past 10 years. Ontario has 1 for every 350,000 and Saskatchewan only has 7 for a population of 1.2MM people. For BC to come close to the number ON has, they would need to almost double the number they have and that will still make women very underserved. It is no wonder the wait lists are as long as they are.
