Personal profile


I graduated from Monash University Medicine with Honours in 1997. I did my surgical training at The Alfred Hospital and passed my General Surgical Fellowship exam in 2004. I spent two years doing further specialist training in Endocrine Surgery, working with some of Australia's leading endocrine surgeons.

Having trained as an endocrine surgeon, I manage problems with the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands including surgery when needed. As well as routine endocrine surgery, I perform minimally invasive (keyhole) thyroid and parathyroid surgery as well as laparoscopic (keyhole) adrenalectomy. I also do my own ultrasound in the rooms to simplify patient management as well as performing fine needle thyroid biopsy when needed

I have a keen interest in clinical research and was one of the foundation members of the Monash University Endocrine Surgery Unit – an academic unit with the goal of promoting excellence in endocrine surgical practice and research. I regularly publish research in local and international medical journals as well as presenting research at local and international scientific meetings. I also keep up to date with the latest research in the world wide literature as well as regularly attending endocrine surgery meetings to ensure that I stay abreast of the latest advances and techniques in endocrine surgery.
