I have been in practice as a specialist orthopaedic surgeon for 20 years. Over the years of practicing in orthopaedics I have developed a special interest in shoulder, hip and knee surgery.
I graduated from the University of Melbourne and then entered the Victorian Orthopaedic Training Program successfully completing this and joining the Royal Australian College of Surgeons.
Following that training I travelled to England, initially studying at The Newmarket Hospital with Mr David Dandy, Mr Chris Constant in the areas of reconstructive surgery to the shoulder and knee. I then studied at The University of Oxford, obtaining a Masters Degree in the Biomechanics of the knee. My clinical work at The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford University focused in hip and knee replacement.
Following my time at Oxford University I spent 6 months at The Orthopaedic and Arthritic Hospital in Toronto Canada training in arthroscopy and reconstructive knee surgery.
On my return to Australia, I entered private practice and accepted a position as consultant orthopaedic surgeon at The Royal Melbourne Hospital and The Alfred Hospital. I continue as a senior orthopaedic surgeon at The Alfred Hospital.
The Alfred Hospital is widely regarded as a leading trauma centre in Australia and I continue to treat general and complex orthopaedic trauma cases there. I have an ongoing interest in management of orthopaedic trauma and I am currently Convenor of the Victorian Orthopaedic Registrar Training Program, Trauma Section.
My private practice is now confined to the areas of shoulder, hip and knee surgery. On these joints I undertake a complete range of arthroscopic, reconstructive and joint replacement procedures. In addition, I continue treating acute trauma and post-traumatic problems.
Outside of orthopaedics, I have 3 children, all studying at University and I am actively involved in swimming, sailing and snow skiing.
