MB ChB 1988 Auckland; FRACS 1994


I am a New Zealand trained Orthopaedic Surgeon, qualifying in 1994. Following this I spent 2 years in the USA training as a subspecialist in the area of upper extremity surgery, including paediatric upper limb surgery. I trained with one of the world’s leading wrist arthroscopic surgeons as part of this training.

Since 1997, I have held a public hospital appointment at Auckland City Hospital, and commenced private practice in that same year.

I am a founding partner in a group private practice setting at Domain Orthopaedic alongside three other subspecialist orthopaedic surgeons covering hip, knee, foot and ankle and tumour surgery. All have public hospital appointments at Auckland City Hospital.

My area of orthopaedic practice is confined to the upper extremity, including hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder surgery.

I have a well-established practice and have extensive experience in all aspects of upper limb surgery.
