F. Theodore Chaykowski, MD (Retired)

Dr. F. Theodore Chaykowski finds his job most rewarding when he helps patients get back to a healthy, active lifestyle.

The Sudbury, Ontario, native helps to achieve that through a team approach that involves nurses, physical therapists and medical practitioners. The patient is always central to the decision-making.

Dr. Chaykowski became interested in orthopedic surgery while he was doing biomedical research in college. When he isn’t working, he enjoys cycling, kayaking, fishing and spending time with his grandchildren.
