Profile

I gained my initial medical degree from the University of Otago and completed my specialist training in orthopaedic surgery in Ireland, where my interest in spine surgery was set.

I then completed sub specialist training in New York at the NYU Langone Medical Centre and Hospital for Joint Diseases in Spine Surgery including Adult and Paediatric Spine Surgery. I complemented this with 6 months at Auckland City Hospital gaining further experience in Adult Spine Surgery. 

My practice now is a mixture of public, private and academic.

I see patients with spinal deformity and those with degenerative conditions of the spine. At Waikato DHB I provide care for patients presenting with traumatic spinal injuries.
