MB ChB 1999 Otago; FRACS (GS) 2015


I am a New Zealand trained oncoplastic breast surgeon, a member of Breast Surgeons of Australia & New Zealand and a member of the New Zealand Association of General Surgeons.

My sub-specialty training in oncoplastic breast surgery allows me to provide a greater range of surgical options for women with breast cancer.

At Middlemore Hospital I am involved in the assessment and treatment of breast & skin disease, acute/emergency general surgical conditions and imparting surgical training/education.

I am passionate about surgical education and research. Over the course of my career, I have received awards for research (Nates Myers Prize) and general surgery (John McCall Prize). To complement my expertise in oncoplastic breast surgery I have also completed a Masters degree in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery from the University of Sydney, Australia.
