  • Pediatric Surgery
Baird Mallory

I began medicine as a family doctor in the sub-Arctic caring for Inuit and Cree families with lots of children. After that I practiced Emergency Medicine while training in General Surgery, then Pediatric Surgery. This included three months in Tennessee, where I focused on minimal access surgery -laparoscopy and thoracoscopy- which have now become the preferred ways of doing many operations. Some of the reasons I look forward to coming to work include watching children play happily on hospital wards (unaware they are “recuperating”) and the immense satisfaction of healing congenital anomalies and cancers (80%) with operations that will last a lifetime. I also like the technical challenge of performing large procedures through small holes in ways that hurt less, scar less, and help kids get back to school and sports quickly.
