- General Surgery
I have finished my medical school at the Otago University in 2002. I undertook my general surgery training in New Zealand and was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2010.
I undertook two years of post-fellowship training specialising in Endocrine Surgery and Surgical Oncology (Breast) at the Royal North Shore and Hornsby hospitals in Sydney.
Apart from being breast and endocrine surgeon I also perform a range of general surgical procedures and see patients with general surgical problems.
I will see patients with all general surgery problems like abdominal wall hernias, gallstones, abdominal pain, bleeding per rectum (PR bleeding or bleeding from back passage), change of bowel habit, skin lesions, skin and neck lumps/masses and enlarged lymph nodes.
I perform a range of general surgical procedures including:
- Laparoscopic (keyhole) and open hernia repairs
- Laparoscopic and open gallbladder surgery
- Excision biopsy of lymph nodes
- Excision of skin lesions
- Excision of skin and neck masses
I do not perform these procedures:
- Gastroscopy and colonoscopy
- Liver surgery
- Oesophageal surgery
- Hiatus hernia Surgery
- Stomach (gastric) surgery
- Hiatus hernia operations
- Colonic operations
