Dr. David Naysmith, Plastic Surgeon

...
Dr. Naysmith is a native of Victoria, BC, a small dot on the map of the vast uncharted territory on the left side of Canada and a place where residents refer to Vancouver as "Eastern Canada". He began his career in Sciences in the physics department of Victoria High School, where he was voted the forty-third best physicist in the class. There, after completing his first laboratory experiment in chemistry, he was asked to consider transferring to an arts program before anyone was seriously injured. Despite this somewhat less than stellar beginning in the sciences he was able to complete a Bachelors degree in Zoology at the University of Victoria in 1971 and go on to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a dentist, graduating from the University of British Columbia Dental School in 1974. His dream was quickly shattered when, after grinding other peoples teeth for about three months, he began to grind his own. He quickly realized that he was on a fast track to adding to the numerator in that well known statistic about dentists and suicide. After several more years of book learning and apprenticeship, the University of British Columbia was kind enough to grant him a degree in Medicine 19 1977. He went on to complete a residency in Plastic Surgery and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada in 1983.
David has practiced plastic surgery in Victoria for the last thirty years. He still loves it and occasionally gets good results. As a third year medical student he had his first experience in the management of a patient with a burn injury. This affected him so profoundly that he made a decision to follow a career path that would allow him to be a part of managing burn injuries for the next thirty five years (and counting). He spent a full year of his plastic surgery residency as "the Burn Resident", and to this day still finds this aspect of his practice to be remarkably fulfilling.
He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery at UBC and enjoys teaching medical students and residents. He has presented academic papers at local, national and international meetings and is presently involved in a basic science research project at the University of Victoria that is looking at developing a skin substitute for burned patients.
As a keynote speaker he has addressed the British Columbia Operating Room Nurses Association, the Canadian Operating Room Nurses Association and in 2005 the American Operating Room Nurses Association. The last of these was a presentation called "Keeping and Sharing the Passion in the Operating Room", a topic that was far less exciting that the title might suggest. He has been the Scholar in Residence at St. Michael's University School and presented an address titled, "Getting There From Here"- a study of goal setting and success. He is now honoured to be one of the keynote speakers at the Canadian Burn Survivor Conference.
His talk, titled "Two Giants and a Dwarf Reflect on War", he will present some of the history of the beginnings of modern burn care by Dr. Gilles in World War 1 and Dr. McIndoe in World War 11. He will then refer to some of his own experiences with Medecins San Frontieres in Bosnia and Eritrea where he treated was related injuries and in Cambodia and India where he treated clefts and burns. Why does he think this will be of interest to this audience?
