BIO

Dr. Evan Crawford grew up in BC, and is happy to be back on the coast after some time away for school. He was raised on Vancouver Island, and progressively moved east with stops in Saskatoon, Madison, WI and Guelph, with a last step back to BC to be closer to family, and also to the wide variety of outdoor recreation available. Outside of work, he enjoys primarily hiking, but also time in a kayak or canoe, or on just about any kind of a bike. Most of the time he is accompanied by his family including both of his two big black dogs, one each from Wisconsin and Ontario.

Dr. Crawford enjoys all aspects of surgery, but also has specific interest in minimally invasive surgical options including Laparoscopy and Arthroscopy.
