Victor Gomel Victor Gomel, MD

Dr. Gomel is a Professor Emeritus and former Head of Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, 1978 – 1993.

Dr. Gomel is internationally known for his pioneering work in both microsurgery and operative laparoscopy. He was responsible for the introduction of laparoscopy in Canada; he was the first to demonstrate the efficacy of laparoscopic fertility-promoting procedures and other general gynecologic procedures using laparoscopic surgical access.

For nearly four decades, Dr. Gomel has been involved in work to better understand the tubal and peritoneal factors that cause infertility, and to improve surgical techniques to correct them. In 1981, he started an in vitro fertilization (IVF) program in Vancouver that was the first in the country to achieve success, resulting in Canada’s first IVF baby on Dec. 25, 1983. Since then, hundreds of children have been born through the program’s reproductive technology.

Dr. Gomel played a major part in creating the BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre, the first such tertiary facility in Canada, in 1992.
