I studied Medicine at Sydney University and after graduating worked at various Sydney Hospitals as an intern, junior medical officer, and advanced General Surgery Registrar. I was then fortunate enough to be offered a Senior training position in Plastic Surgery. After completion of Specialist Plastic Surgery Training, I pursued further interests of Aesthetic Surgery in the United Kingdom and Microsurgery in Asia.
Now a consultant Plastic Surgeon at major Eastern Suburbs Hospitals: Prince of Wales, Sydney Children’s, and Royal Women’s Hospitals, I enjoy my clinical work as well as teaching and charitable trips to the Third World.
My practice encompasses all aspects of general plastic surgery from skin cancer through to facial and breast enhancement as well as the aesthetic specialty areas of face, breast and body rejuvenation.
Teaching for me takes many forms from lectures to Medical Students at University to being the Director of Plastic Surgery Training at Prince of Wales and Sydney Children’s Hospitals whereby Senior Plastic Surgery Trainees are guided through their final years of Training prior to becoming independent Specialist Plastic Surgeons.
My other passion is charitable work in the Third world. I dedicate at least two weeks a year to work as an Interplast Surgeon. This is predominantly in the Philippines where I perform facial reconstructive surgery on underprivileged children.
I maintain my expertise by keeping abreast of worldwide developments in Plastic Surgery, attending and speaking at both Domestic and International Courses and Conferences.
My philosophy has always been to deliver the best natural results I possibly can in a caring environment. This comes about for me through a strong foundation in training and a continual pursuit of knowledge and excellence. For my patients, this is achieved through an individually tailored plan in a safe, caring and experienced environment.
