I started my medical career in Geelong in 2007. The majority of my training in anaesthesia has been in the major hospitals of Melbourne. I completed a Fellowship in Paediatric Anaesthesia at The Royal Children’s Hospital in order to prepare me for the relatively high number of paediatric patients in Geelong. My family and I also spent time in the Northern Territory while I completed a fellowship at the Royal Darwin Hospital, the NT’s major trauma hospital.
As a consultant anaesthetist I divide my time between working at my public appointment at The Alfred Hospital and in private practice in Geelong. I have a particular interest in paediatric anaesthesia but my broad training allows me to care for a diverse range of patients in the ever-expanding range of procedures in modern surgery.
Having an anaesthetic for surgery can be an anxiety provoking and stressful time for most people. My goal is to make your journey as comfortable and safe as possible. I want you to feel in control of your experience and there is no question too silly to ask. Every anaesthetic is different and we can tailor it to suit your needs after discussing your options.
My life outside of work revolves around my young family. We live on the surf coast and love mountain biking and surfing. My other love is Tasmania. We regularly head down to the family beach shack in the deep wild south at Cockle Creek for fishing, hiking and surfing adventures.
If you have any questions relating to your anaesthetic, please feel free to contact me via my rooms at Geelong Anaesthetic Group.
