Dr. Will Allanach has been treating patients in the Greater Moncton Area and the Maritimes for over a decade.
Having lived in the Moncton area for most of his life, Dr. Allanach graduated from Moncton High School. He then went on to Saint Mary’s University, where he completed both a Commerce and a Science degree with honours distinction. During this time, he excelled both academically and athletically. He played hockey for the Saint Mary’s Huskies for 5 years, co-captain his last two, and was awarded Academic All-Canadian.
As a third generation physician, an interest in medicine came quite naturally to Dr. Allanach. He attended Dalhousie University (Dal) for medical school training, where he pursued an avid interest in sports and musculoskeletal injury. This led to an orthopaedic residency through Dal at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax. Upon graduation he returned to Moncton, where he readily accepted a position as a member of the Orthopaedic Surgery team at the Moncton Hospital in 2002.
After working in Moncton for a year, Dr. Allanach went to Wellington, New Zealand, to gain additional knowledge and expertise in the area of joint replacements. During his time there, he also provided medical coverage for the New Zealand Thai Kickboxing Championship in 2003.
Returning to Moncton in 2004, Dr. Allanach used his skills, experience and expertise in orthopaedics and musculoskeletal health to build a busy orthopaedic surgery practice. Since then, he has shown a commitment to improving the quality of surgery at The Moncton Hospital. First as Chief of Orthopaedics, then followed by a term as Chief of the Department of Surgery. During this time, Dr. Allanach consulted on the development of the New Brunswick Surgical Care Network, where the main focus was improving access to surgical care for New Brunswickers, as well as implementation of a surgical safety checklist.
Dr. Allanach believes it is important to be involved in the community. He has provided medical coverage for the Moncton High School Football and Hockey Teams, and the 2010 World Junior and 2013 Canadian Track and Field Championships. Dr. Allanach is currently on the medical staff for the Moncton Wildcats hockey team. During most recent term of chief of orthopaedics he initialized reorganization of orthopaedic patient care pathway as well applied and was granted for new computer navigation equipment for total knee replacements.
Dr. Allanach is proud to provide the highest level of professional and courteous orthopaedic care, while remaining committed to continuous learning, teaching and staying current on the latest surgical techniques.
