FRCSC (Urology)     
Surgical Director, Kidney Transplantation

Dr. McGregor began his medical training in eastern Ontario, completing medical school at the University of Ottawa in 2004 and then his urology residency at Queen's University in 2009. He then went on to complete a two year fellowship in renal transplantation and minimally invasive surgery at the University of Western Ontario in 2011. From there he was recruited to the University of Manitoba where he introduced laparoscopic donor surgery and helped expand a reputable living kidney donor program. While at the University of Manitoba he was appointed to Urology Program Director as well as the Thorlakson Co-chair in Surgical Research. Following a successful stretch in Manitoba he was recruited back to Queen's University to expand the transplant program here and to bring minimally invasive donor surgery to Kingston, Ontario.  In setting up a successful Living Donor Program in Kingston, Dr. McGregor has received a Leadership Award for his efforts.  Both Winnipeg and Kingston now have very reputable Renal Transplant programs providing excellent care to patients in those regions.  Other achievements during his time at Queen's University was the initiation and set-up of a successful Robotic Renal Sugery program.

The final leg of his medical journey has brought him to the east coast of Canada to join the Dalhousie Urology Team.   He hopes to help expand an already busy kidney transplant program as well as contribute his MIS and robotic skills to help treat patients in the region who suffer from renal pathology.
