Profile

I am a New Zealand trained general surgeon, with specialist training in breast and endocrine (thyroid, parathyroid and other glands) surgery, which I gained in Australia and England.

I now work as a Consultant Breast, Endocrine and General Surgeon for Counties Manukau Health at Middlemore Hospital and Manukau SuperClinic, as well as in private practice.  The majority of my work encompasses assessment and treatment of breast disease (in both breast screening and diagnostic environments), thyroid assessment and surgery, as well as elective and emergency general surgery.  I will make a commitment to you to use my knowledge and experience to look after you to the best of my ability.

Interests

My interests are Breast Disease, Endocrine Surgery and General Surgery (including familial Breast Disorders, Breast Surgery, Thyroid Surgery, Parathyroid Surgery, Adrenal Surgery, Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy and Hernia Surgery). I have published articles and presented at international conferences on these subjects.

I also have an interest in surgical education and maintaining our New Zealand trained workforce.
