It is an international leader in neurosurgery, complex cardiac care, multiple sclerosis, kidney transplantation, HIV/AIDS, ophthalmology, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and the use of artificial intelligence in health care. St. Michael’s relentless physicians, surgeons, scientists and staff take on some of the world’s toughest health challenges, digging deep to find solutions to intractable medical problems. And true to the hospital’s history, they advocate on behalf of those whose health is complicated by life circumstances.
