Colin MacColl, MD

Trinity Health is very pleased to welcome Colin MacColl, MD, to our general surgery team. Dr. MacColl is board-certified with over 30 years of surgical experience. He’s knowledgeable in all aspects of general surgery, with strong clinical interests in breast and bariatric surgery.

A Saskatchewan native, Dr. MacColl’s surgical interest was inspired by his mother, a nurse with a fly-in clinic that served multiple rural communities in northern Saskatchewan. Occasionally she needed to bring patients into their home to provide stabilizing care, including surgical procedures.

After earning his medical degree from the University of Saskatchewan – graduating with distinction, he completed a four-year general surgery residency at the University of Calgary, followed by a laparoscopic surgery fellowship at McGill University in Montreal. Later, he completed his fellowship in laparoscopic bariatric (weight loss) surgery at Tufts University, Boston.

Dr. MacColl has practiced in Canada and the US. He was on the general surgery staff of Altru Health System in Grand Forks from 1999 to 2009. Prior to joining Trinity Health, he had a 15-year association with Peacehealth in Eugene, OR, where he established and directed the hospital’s bariatric surgery program.

Dr. MacColl is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. He’s a member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery. He also serves as Associate Clinical Profession of Surgery with the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
