"A groundbreaker throughout most of his life, Reid entered the world almost 3 months early, and was one of the first babies of that era to survive at such an early age. After becoming a physician he was a strong advocate for the best medical care, pioneering many groundbreaking surgeries and profoundly changing the lives of numerous patients. In 1976, he was 1 of 3 Canadian plastic surgeons invited by the Chinese government to share the latest in burn-care management and microsurgery. In 2007, Reid was awarded a lifetime achievement award by the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons."
