Canaan Baer, M.D.


Specialty: General Surgery, Board-certified

Sub Specialties: Colon and Rectal Surgery

Clinical Interests: -Colon and Rectal Surgery -Hernia Surgery -Gallbladder Disease

Gender: Male


I grew up on a horse farm in Southeastern Ohio, and have always loved problem-solving and working with my hands. While in medical school in Cleveland, I immediately gravitated to the operating room, and have never looked back. I moved to the Pacific Northwest for residency, and spent six wonderful years in Seattle training with some truly iconic figures in the field of general and colorectal surgery. I am a huge proponent of minimally-invasive surgery, and regularly use robotics in the treatment of colon and rectal diseases. I understand that no one wants to need a surgeon, and I make it a priority to give my patients the experience I would want for my own family.
