MB ChB 2001 Auckland; FRACS (Orth) 2009



 After training as an Orthopaedic Surgeon in New Zealand, I undertook fellowships at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in South Australia and then at Vancouver General Hospital in Canada before returning to a Consultant position at Auckland City Hospital.

I specialise in hip and knee joint replacement, especially complex primary and revision surgery. I have an interest in managing hip problems in young patients and perform reconstructive procedures and arthroscopy in the public system. I cover all aspects of orthopaedic trauma at Auckland City Hospital and sub-specialise in fractures of the hip and lower limb and fractures around hip and knee replacements.

I am committed to strengthening medical education and research in New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region. I am a clinical lecturer with Auckland University Medical School, Department of Surgery and closely affiliated with the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. I am the New Zealand Research Officer for AO Asia Pacific and sit on the Young Surgeons Committee for the International Society for Orthopaedics and Traumatology. I regularly travel throughout Asia teaching with the Zimmer Education Institute.

The surgeons at Eastwood Orthopaedic Clinic hold appointments at Middlemore, Auckland and Starship Hospitals with access to the full spectrum of subspecialty expertise. Our ethos is excellence in orthopaedic surgery and we aim to provide this to every patient under our care.
