About Dr. Matthew Snider

Dr. Matt Snider is a Royal College certified orthopaedic surgeon practicing in sports injuries of the knee (especially meniscus and ACL injuries) along with hip and knee arthritis and replacements.

Dr. Snider completed medical school at the University of Western Ontario (2000-2004) and then completed the Orthopaedic Surgery Residency program at UWO (2004-2009).  He then completed a sports medicine fellowship in Auckland, New Zealand (2009) with a focus on knee injuries.  He has performed thousands of sports knee surgeries and thousands of hip and knee replacements in his 13 years in orthopaedic surgical practice.

Dr. Snider is an Assistant Clinical Professor at McMaster University (Hamilton, ON) and the chief of the Orthopaedic Surgery division in Kitchener-Waterloo, ON.  Dr. Snider is looking forward to expanding his surgical practice by joining the Acumen team to provide top quality care to the patients of Alberta in addition to his southwestern Ontario patients.

Dr. Snider has opted out of medicare billing in Alberta and therefore directly bills patients for services.

A Notice Pursuant to the Opting Out Provision of Alberta Health Care Insurance Act

This is to advise that I, Dr. Snider, have opted out of the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan effective.

This will mean that the individual patient—and not the government—will be responsible for the payment of my fees. Patients will not be able to seek reimbursement for these costs from Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan. I will abide by the Alberta Medical Association’s Guidelines regarding billing for uninsured services, by the direction from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta, and Alberta’s Health Information Act.”
