PERSONAL HISTORY

IMG_4752.jpg

Dr. Buchko was born & raised in Regina. After graduating from Michael A. Riffel High School in 2001, he attended the University of Regina where he completed his Bachelor of Science (Biology) degree in 2005.  He then traveled to Saskatoon where he spent the next 9 years; in 2009 he earned his Medical Degree from the University of Saskatchewan and in 2014 completed his Orthopaedic Surgery residency, also at the University of Saskatchewan.  Vancouver was the next stop, where he completed a one-year Reconstructive Arthroscopy fellowship at the University of British Columbia.  However he always had a strong desire to move back home, to be back on the prairies, in the land where people bleed green, close to family and friends, to serve the people in the community in which he grew up. That desire became reality when he was fortunate to accept a position with the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region. He began his medical practice in September 2015. He is a member of the active medical staff of the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region. He is fully certified as a specialist in Orthopaedic Surgery and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada.  He enjoys spending time with his lovely wife and beautiful daughter.

philosophy

My goal is to help you recover from your musculoskeletal condition. Whether that be through surgery, an injection, casting or bracing, referral to a physiotherapist, or reassurance that it will improve on its own with time, please know that I will do my absolute best to help you.  I will spend the necessary time to properly diagnose your condition, explain it to you in terms you can understand, recommend a treatment plan, and answer your questions. This sometimes means I run behind. It also usually means I cannot see as many patients in a day. However I prefer to take this approach. Although it means a longer wait to see me, it also means you get to spend an adequate amount of time with me when you do see me.
