MB ChB 2000 Auckland; FRACS (GS) 2008


After completing his Australasian Surgical Fellowship (FRACS), Barnaby spent over two years of higher training at international posts to further his clinical skills.

A Clinical Fellowship at the Royal Marsden (London, UK) in Melanoma and Surgical Oncology under their internationally recognised Team. This twelve-month exposure to Melanoma and Surgical Oncology at a truly tertiary level translates into a thorough and comprehensive skill set in managing these conditions.

This was followed by a Clinical Fellowship at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh (UK) in Upper Gastrointestinal surgery (Cancer and Benign Surgery). The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh is an established and revered centre of excellence that has a proud history of education, study and surgical results. It has strong links to Australasian Fellows, and a fellowship within it ensures complete higher training in endoscopic and surgical management of malignant and benign oesophageal and gastric conditions.

Prior to returning to the Bay of Plenty, Barnaby spent time at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC, New York, USA) as an Observatory Fellow in surgical oncology. This Centre of excellence is world renowned for its academia and surgical prowess - generally regarded as one of the top such institutions in the world.

Barnaby holds Surgical Consultant positions across the District Health Board at both the Tauranga and Whakatāne Public Hospitals. Barnaby also works from the East Bay Specialist Centre (Whakatāne) and Grace Hospital (Tauranga) private institutions.
