I grew up and attended school in Sydney & Melbourne, then graduated with honours in M.B.B.S. from Melbourne University in 2001. During my final year of medicine I was proud to be awarded the J.P.Ryan prize for Surgery. In my first two years as a Doctor I worked in a number of medical fields to gain a breadth of experience before choosing to train in General Surgery at the Royal Melbourne and Austin Hospitals. It was a very happy day for me to receive my Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons (RACS) in 2011 during an International RACS Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. My early training allowed me to develop the advanced skills needed in performing such operations as keyhole/laparoscopic groin and abdominal wall hernias and keyhole gallbladder surgery (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy), with additional advanced skills of removing gallstones from near the pancreas. Endoscopy (gastroscopy) and colonoscopy were also key features and I have continued to perform these to date. I chose to sub-specialise in Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery after realising my enthusiasm for tackling the challenging technical aspects and disease types of this surgical field. Again, with the goal of helping each individual I treat. Such examples of my interest included training in keyhole Hiatus Hernia Surgery which is undertaken through the diaphragm and just behind the heart…….to being right in the frontline of helping to manage the increasing burden of obesity for individuals and our society…….and also the satisfaction of a collaborative therapeutic approach to managing unfortunate patients who develop Upper GastroIntestinal Malignancies.
