After a year as a research fellow at the Royal Victoria Hospital, he established his practice in orthopedic surgery in Moncton, New Brunswick, where he was devoted to his patients at The Moncton Hospital for over 40 years.

The family would like to thank Dr. Christine Telfer and the nurses of the Extra-Mural Program and the many healthcare professionals who provided him with such wonderful care and support. In accordance with Doug’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in Doug’s memory to Friends of The Moncton Hospital.
