About Us

Burnaby Orthopaedic & Mastectomy

Burnaby Orthopaedic Source Inc was founded by Pamela Gardner and opened its doors in 1992.  The idea to start the company came from both a need and a desire to have a full service Orthotic & Bracing clinic in the rapidly growing Metrotown Area of Burnaby, thereby allowing people to be fitted locally for their orthotics and bracing, rather than having to travel to other cities.  The business started at the corner of Nelson & Kingsway now considered the heart of downtown Burnaby where we remain today doing business as   Burnaby Orthopaedic & Mastectomy.  We are centrally located across from the Metrotown Mall and are easily accessible by car, bus, skytrain, and handy dart which makes getting here convenient for most people.

With the loyal support of the numerous health care practitioners in the area, some working out of Burnaby Hospital, coupled with many returning clients, Burnaby Orthopaedic & Mastectomy has grown from a one person office to five full time team members, all bringing their unique talents and skills to the company.

Our Vision statement is to “to provide a knowledgeable and thorough, full service, orthotic and bracing experience to every person who walks in our doors.” People have many choices when it comes to their bracing needs so we have purposely invested many hours and resources into the Burnaby Orthopaedic & Mastectomy team to be the most knowledgeable they can be about the appliances & products we make and fit.  Our team consists of a Certified Orthotist, a Pedorthist, two Kinesiologists, and a lab tech.  Together we have a combined 47 years of experience!

That’s the Burnaby Orthopaedic & Mastectomy difference! That and our belief in old fashioned, family style service with integrity!

In the beginning Burnaby Orthopaedic Source Inc focused on foot orthotics and knee braces, but as we grew and the demand for Mastectomy and Lymphedema products became apparent, we changed our name to Burnaby Orthopaedic & Mastectomy to closer reflect the diversity of our clientele.  To this day we carry a large stock of breast prosthetics, lymphedema products, and compression garments to complement our orthotic line.

Along with the many diverse products we carry and services we provide at our location, we also provide a mobile service, when required by our clients, or at the request of a nursing home or home care nurses.

As a company we believe in giving back to our community and are very proud to sponsor or participate in such events as the Firefighters Xmas breakfast and Ball, Burnaby Neighborhood Gala Ball, Burnaby Hospital Gala, Rotary Club of Burnaby Christmas Dinner, and our own Christmas Bureau sponsorship.

We look forward to having the opportunity to serve your orthotic and bracing needs.
