Doctor Spotlight: Dr. Geddes

 

Thirty-eight years a surgeon, sixty-fourthousand patients treated and one awesome career.

 

In December 2016, Dr. Scott Geddes retired — well sort of. Dr. Geddes first came to Cambridge Memorial Hospital in 1979 and chose our hospital over many others because he loved the city and wanted to work close to family. Although interested in all aspects of surgery, Dr. Geddes found his passion in general surgery. It was a field in which he thought he could provide the best possible care for the most people.

 

Quickly integrating himself within the CMH family Dr. Geddes became a tireless champion for our Foundation. When asked what motivated him, he responded,

 

The Foundation is very important for the hospital. We get money from the government for salaries, bricks, and mortar, but as surgeons, the funding we get for the equipment we use comes from our community. It’s important to give back, and I chose to help raise funds so that we can provide the best care possible to our patients.

 

Retirement brought a whole new set of fun activities for Dr. Geddes, like spending more time with family, going to the cottage and getting on his bike for long trips. Six months into his well-deserved retirement, he found himself missing the bustle of surgery and helping people. So, he recently stepped back into the operating room as an assistant and continued his role as an assessor for the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. He also maintained his carpal tunnel clinic at the hospital. In addition to all of this, he decided to accept an opportunity to cover a six-month leave in general surgery. As Dr. Geddes says, “I guess I haven’t yet completely retired.”
