Adjunct 1 Appointment from Sept 2022-Present 


Dr. Antonio Caycedo is a colorectal surgeon who was named an associate professor at Queen's University in May 2020, after having worked in Northern Ontario for more than nine years. Dr. Caycedo completed medical school and his initial general surgery residency in his native Colombia. Dr. Caycedo moved to Canada in 2004 to complete his second general surgery residency at the University of Ottawa, followed by a clinical fellowship in colorectal surgery at Western University in London, Ontario. In addition, he received a master's degree in clinical research from Liverpool University (UK). Dr. Caycedo has extensive knowledge in the least invasive treatment of rectal cancer and is always on the hunt for new treatments. He is credited with introducing transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) to Canada and is a national pioneer of transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (taTME). The Royal College of Surgeons of Canada has awarded him board certification in both general and colorectal surgery. Dr. Caycedo pays special attention to clinical research and education; as a result, he has established a number of collaborations with surgeons in Canada and abroad, which has led him to participate in a number of clinical trials; for instance, he is the only Canadian participant in the ongoing COLOR3 trial, which aims to determine the safety of taTME. Dr. Caycedo decided to seek new professional opportunities in September of this year, but he remains affiliated with Queen's as an adjunct 1 Associate Professor.
