I am an experienced specialist breast and thyroid surgeon. I provide surgical consultation and opinion, clinical evaluation including ultrasound guided needle biopsies and perform surgery.
I take time to explain what it means to have cancer and the implications, often with the aid of drawings, mapping out potential pathways, avenues of care and important considerations. I tailor treatment plans to each individual’s needs and discuss in confidence patient care plans with the multi-disciplinary care team at Cabrini.
I trained as a surgeon in Melbourne and regional Victoria and was awarded the Royal Australian College Dr Leslie prize for my clinical research. In 2002, as a Fellow I undertook a further two years of specialist training at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Adelaide.
I regularly meet with surgical colleagues to review clinical activities, am a team member in multidisciplinary meetings, and attend conferences and workshops to keep up to date with new discoveries and surgical techniques.
