Specialist

Qualifications

MB ChB 2007 Otago; FRACS (GS) 2015

Profile

I am a New Zealand trained general surgeon and endoscopist, with extensive sub-specialty training in colorectal surgery. I have a strong focus in minimally invasive surgical techniques (laparoscopy), and strongly believe in enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) principles.

I completed two years of post-fellowship colorectal surgical training. My first fellowship was at Auckland City hospital with a focus on minimally invasive colorectal surgery, pelvic floor disorders, intestinal failure/nutrition and enhanced recovery after surgery.

I undertook a second fellowship at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane performing large-volume minimally invasive colorectal resections, managing patients with complex inflammatory bowel disease, and peritoneal malignancy including cyto-reductive surgery.

I offer a patient-centered approach to the assessment and management of all general surgical conditions, and ensure patients have an understanding of their condition and treatment rationale.
