Im a Canadian immigrant since 2005 and I had accident back home in 2002 . In resuly my leg got fractured . Then I operated two times from two different orthopedic sergeons back home. But its not successfuly done yet. I still feel pain and need surgery again.

My question is do OHIP covers orthopedic surgerys in Canada or I have to pay it for private insurance.
