Dr Jordan Leith | M.D., M.HSc., F.R.C.S.(C)

Dr. Leith combines advanced clinical, educational and research skills to expand and improve orthopaedic knowledge and treatment. He teaches advanced arthroscopic surgical skills, focused on arthroscopic reconstruction of the shoulder, elbow and knee, locally, nationally and internationally. Dr. Leith also conducts collaborative research with the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation and the Joint Orthopaedic Initiative for National Trials of the Shoulder (JOINTS).

An Associate Professor in the Department of Orthopaedics at the University of British Columbia (UBC), he is also the Director of the Fellowship programs for the Divisions of Hand and Upper Extremity and Athletic Injuries and Arthroscopic Surgery.  In addition to serving as an active staff member of the Vancouver General and UBC Hospitals, Dr. Leith is also involved with several professional, university and national amateur teams as a consultant.

A Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada, he is an active member of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association, an Associate Member of the Arthroscopy Association of North America, and a full member of JOINTS Canada.  

A Masters of Health Science in Health Care and Epidemiology has provided him with expertise in health outcomes research and research methodology. That expertise has led to his involvement in collaborative research with the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation and with JOINTS. It has also brought grants for clinical research and led to invitations to sit on two research disbursement committees. Dr. Leith is a frequently invited presenter, guest lecturer and conference participant.

A 1994 graduate of the UBC Faculty of Medicine, Dr. Leith completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at UBC in 1999, and a one-year Fellowship in Shoulder and Elbow and Sports Medicine at the University of Washington in 2000. In 2004, he obtained the Masters of Health Science in Health Care and Epidemiology from UBC.
