I am a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, consulting in Paediatric Surgery for the past fifteen years. I trained in Paediatric Surgery in Newcastle, Adelaide and Melbourne with post fellowship years in Bristol and Oxford UK. I provide general surgical practice (including inguinoscrotal problems and hypospadias) for infants, children and teenagers through the Memorial Hospital, and provide infant circumcision at the Memorial Medical Centre. Neonatal and complex surgery is undertaken through the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
Paediatric Thoracic Surgery is my area of specialised practice, focused largely on lung pathology and pectus deformity, providing non-operative and operative pathways for these children depending on lesion type, clinical significance and prognosis.
I look forward to discussing any of the above with you and your child.
