MB ChB 2007 Auckland; FRACS (GS) 2015


I am a dedicated laparoscopic Bariatric Surgeon having completed my surgical training in New Zealand. I underwent further specialist training at the Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital with Dr George Hopkins, a high volume bariatric surgeon with a subspecialty interest in revisional bariatric surgery, as well as working alongside Dr David Schroeder at Weight Loss Surgery Hamilton.

I am a member of the Australia and New Zealand Metabolic Surgery Society (ANZMOSS) and I sit on the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Indigenous Health Committee and Māori Health Advisory Group. I am also part of the New Zealand Medical Assistance Team that deploys to the Asia-Pacific region for medical disaster relief.

I perform both the one anastomosis gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy, as well as Roux-en-Y gastric bypasses in both the primary and revisional setting.
