The Best Practice in Surgery continues to develop and/or adopt guidelines for use in University of Toronto affiliated hospitals. Here you will find guidelines that were locally tailored specifically for this context. In addition to the guidelines we have developed, we also support the use of other clinical practice guidelines in order to provide evidence-based care to all of our surgical patients.

If you are aware of guidelines that you would like to see here, please email bestpracticeinsurgery@utoronto.ca.


These guidelines have been prepared using best available evidence and expert opinion. However, these guidelines only provide recommendations for care and are not to be used to replace independent medical judgment. Best Practice in Surgery takes no responsibility for the use or application of this guideline and its recommendations for the care of patients.
