Profile

An expert downhill skier with an advanced certification in open-water scuba diving and Certificate Program in Piano from Toronto’s Royal Conservatory of Music under her belt, it’s no surprise that Dr. Venessa Stas approaches her life as an orthopedic surgeon with much enthusiasm.

“Not only is orthopedics mentally stimulating, but it is also physically challenging and you get concrete results toward improving people’s lives,” she says. “I feel it is more of a vocation than a job.”

Dr. Stas completed her medical degree, specialist training in orthopedic surgery, and a fellowship in adult orthopedic trauma in Toronto, and also completed an additional fellowship in adult hip and knee joint reconstruction in Chicago. The combination of training in two countries and being double board certified has allowed her to take the best aspects from each and shape it into her own approach, with a human touch.

“I treat every patient individually, as if they were a member of my family,” she says. “It’s all about honesty, sincerity, and treating everyone with respect.”
