Dr. Scott Paquette completed his neurosurgery training in Ottawa prior to a fellowship overseas in Melbourne, Australia. He returned to Canada in 2004 to join the Division of Spine at Vancouver General Hospital. His practice is confined to adult spine surgery, with special interest in degenerative disease, trauma, intradural pathology, and spasticity.

Dr. Paquette has a particular interest in surgical education. He holds a Masters of Adult Education and sits on the resident education committees for both Neurosurgery and Orthopaedics at UBC and is a co-director of the Vancouver Spine Fellowship program. He is currently the Education Chair of the Canadian Spine Society and is working towards the development of a national spine fellowship program.

In additional to his work in Vancouver, Dr. Scott Paquette has an interest in international spine education; he is particularly interested in a project in Nepal to support and guide the training of a spinal neurosurgeon and a spinal cord medicine physician.
