About Dr. Ezekiel Weis MD, MPH, FRCSC 

There’s a clear need from patients for ocular brachytherapy in the province, and it made sense to build a premier ocular treatment program in Alberta,” says Dr. Ezekiel Weis, a Calgary-based ocular surgeon and Medical Director of the Alberta Ocular Brachytherapy Program. Dr. Weis helped establish the program.

“We established the program so people wouldn’t have to travel thousands of kilometers for treatment. The Alberta Ocular Brachytherapy Program is now considered a center of excellence when it comes to ocular cancers, research and assessment,” he says.

Although he lives in Calgary, Dr. Weis regularly travels to Edmonton to provide better access for patients in the area and reduce their travel concerns. When he’s not at work, Dr. Weis can be found spending time with his young family or enjoying all things outdoors such as hiking or cycling.

  • Twenty years of mountain-climbing experience, including recent summits of Mt. Athabasca, Mt. Andromeda and Mt. Temple in the Canadian Rockies
  •  If he hadn’t become a medical researcher and eye surgeon, Dr. Ezekiel Weis says he would have been a professional mountain-climbing guide, shepherding less experienced climbers through dangerous, difficult climbs and making sure they lived to tell the tale.
