Newfoundland-based licensed plastic surgeon. 


Born and raised in British Columbia, Dr. Seal moved to Vancouver after high school to study at the University of British Columbia where he completed his undergraduate degree and attended Medical School. He was honoured to be chosen as Valedictorian of his medical school graduating class. From Vancouver, he moved to St. John’s where he started his Orthopedic Surgery residency.

In St. John’s, Dr. Seal discovered his passion for plastic surgery while on rotation with the Plastic Surgery team at the Health Sciences Centre. He then transferred into the Plastic Surgery Training Program at McMaster University in Hamilton.

It was in Hamilton where he completed his training and was awarded the best clinical research paper during his Chief Residency year. He published several articles while a resident in Hamilton.

Moving again to Vancouver for additional fellowship training, Dr. Seal enrolled in two fellowships: Breast Reconstruction and Craniofacial Surgery. His time in Vancouver also led to further research projects and journal publications.

He moved back to St. John’s in 2010 and has been in active practice ever since. He enjoys the diversity of his work, both at the hospital and within his private practice and cares for patients at the Health Sciences Centre, St. Clare’s Hospital and the Janeway. He was the President of the Medical Staff association in 2015-2016 and has been Chair of the Breast Disease Site Group since 2016. Additionally, in 2021 Dr. Seal joined the Specialty Committee in Plastic Surgery for the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

A devoted husband and father, Dr. Seal is kept quite busy during downtime and can usually be found cheering on his four children at hockey, soccer and dance events.

Dr. Seal is passionate about keeping up-to-date in all developments within the field of plastic surgery.
