SAIU is the largest and most comprehensive urological centre in Canada. It is also home of the Prostate Cancer Centre and vesia [Alberta Bladder Centre].
SAIU is a private institute. We are not part of AHS, but we collaborate with our AHS colleagues and use the surgical facilities at the Rockyview General Hospital.
We aim to improve patient care. That’s why our urologists are involved in clinical trials and basic-science research.
Dr. Dushinski has been my urologist for more than 20 years. He is absolutely the BEST!! Thank you for everything.
I recently had pelvic organ prolapse surgery (cystocele, enterocele, rectocele) under the care of Dr. Kevin Carlson. Dr. Carlson provided exceptional care and skill in every aspect of this experience - from diagnosis to surgery and post-surgery. I was also very impressed with Dr. Carlson’s team. Now, I feel so much better - like myself again. I would definitely recommend Dr. Carlson. He is a gifted surgeon and seems dedicated to providing excellent care.
I recently was admitted to Rockyview Hospital, in order to have a kidney removed. Dr. Metcalfe and his team (including his receptionist) were phenomenal! The surgery went well and I was out of the hospital the following day.
From the volunteers in the main entrance to the volunteers in the Urology area everything was very friendly, helpful and patient focused. The staff in the Urology department including Dr. Metcalf and Nurse Cheryl were extremely personable, professional and caring. The facility was very clean and the clinic was efficient and on-time. I know it is the work that happens there each and every day and it does deserve recognition. Just wanted to say thanks.
I wanted to pass on how impressed my wife and I are with the SAIU and all the staff that we have dealt with over the last few months, from doctors, nurses, aids, volunteers and anyone else behind the scenes that we didn’t meet. All are commended equally, right from diagnosis, admitting to present. Thanks to Dr. Donnelly and Dr. Duffy for their caring and professionalism. They always had time to answer all our questions and concerns, especially when we were first told I had prostate cancer.
