Dr. Marc Beauchamp:
a dedicated doctor

My name is Dr. Marc Beauchamp. I’m an orthopaedic surgeon and I received my degree in orthopaedic surgery in Montreal in 1993. After graduating, I completed a fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery, arthroscopy, and sports medicine at the University of Toronto from 1994 to 1995. At the time, I was part of the medical staff of the Toronto Raptors NBA team. I then supplemented my training with specialized courses in both the United States and Europe. From 1996 to 2005, I was affiliated with Université de Montréal as an assistant professor in the Department of Surgery. In addition to being a specialized clinician, I am also a researcher, speaker, and author of a number of articles and book chapters. I also serve as a consultant for several teams and businesses, including Cirque du Soleil.

I have two main professional interests: upper extremity (shoulder and elbow) surgery and arthroscopy. It has been nearly 25 years since my interest in these areas led me to decide to sub-specialize in these niche fields, with the goal of one day ascending to the ranks of the international elite. To get there, I not only needed additional training, I needed to perform an extremely high number of procedures. I’ve performed more than 8,000 shoulder and elbow surgeries (primarily using arthroscopy), which has made me one of the foremost experts in this field in Canada and around the world.

From 1996 to 2005, I held an academic position in the Faculty of Medicine at Université de Montréal. My waiting list kept getting longer and longer, with patients needing to wait more than a year for an appointment. So in 2005, I decided to move exclusively to a private practice since, in Canada, working in both the private and public systems at the same time is not allowed. I now offer care outside the purview of the Quebec Health Insurance Board (Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec—RAMQ). This eliminates administrative limitations and bureaucratic rationing. My appointment and treatment wait times have gone from several months or even years to just a few weeks.

Medicine isn’t just my job—it’s my passion. It allows me to build a real relationship with my patients. My patients and I are on the same team: I want them to be well informed and, if possible, active participants in their care. I want my practice to be both professional and friendly—where patients feel welcome and receive high-quality care. I emphasize a personalized approach, delivered in a private setting, where we take as much time as needed. For me, it’s important that the process be interesting, and even enjoyable, for my patients. Working in this way, I’ve found that my initial passion, rather than subsiding, has grown every single day. Let me share my passion with you!
