About Dr Beauchamp, Orthopedic Surgeon in Montreal

MD, FRCS(c)

I received my degree in orthopedic surgery in Montreal in 1993 and continued my education with a fellowship at the University of Toronto in 1994 and 1995 in shoulder and elbow surgery, arthroscopy and sports medicine. During that time, I was affiliated with the medical team of the NBA’s Toronto Raptors. I completed my training with specialized courses in the United States and Europe. From 1996 to 2005, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Surgery at Université de Montréal. In addition to being a clinical specialist, I am also a researcher, a speaker and the author of several articles and book chapters. I act as a consultant for several teams and companies, including Cirque du Soleil.

I have two main professional passions: upper limb surgery (shoulder and elbow), and arthroscopy. These interests led me, almost 25 years ago now, to make the decision to specialize in these narrow fields so that one day I could excel in them at the same level as the world’s elite. To achieve this, I was required to complete further training (a fellowship) and perform several hundred consecutive procedures. I achieved both objectives, performing more than 6000 shoulder and elbow surgeries (most by arthroscopy) over the years and developing an expertise that is among the most extensive in this field in Canada.

From 1996 to 2005, I operated in a number of Montreal-area hospitals (CHUM-Hôtel Dieu, Santa-Cabrini, Fleury) in addition to training several young doctors. Over that period, however, I saw my waiting list grow constantly; sometimes, the wait time was one year for an appointment and nearly one and a half years for surgery. In 2005, therefore, I decided to go exclusively into private practice (in Canada, it is illegal to practice in the public and private sectors simultaneously). Since then, I have offered my services independently of the RAMQ, thereby avoiding administrative and bureaucratic restrictions. My wait times for consultations and treatment have decreased from several months or years to mere weeks.

In addition to being my work, medicine allows me to interact with patients. Naturally, I want them to be well informed and, if possible, actively involved in their treatment so that we can work as a team. My goal is to pursue a practice that is both professional and friendly, high quality and pleasant. I prefer a personalized approach in a private setting where we can take all the time we need. Since surgery is something most people dread and has a negative connotation, I believe it is important to make it an interesting and even enjoyable experience.

If you have already been or are about to become a patient of mine, I hope you will find these pages helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
