I am an Upper Gastrointestinal, Bariatric and General Surgeon. I specialise in the management of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, and disorders of the oesophagus and stomach, including cancer, achalasia and gastroparesis. I also perform POEM and G-POEM procedures, hiatus hernias repair, antireflux surgery and weight loss surgery among others.
I obtained my medical degree from Monash University and my qualifications in surgery in 2007. I then undertook two sub-specialty clinical fellowships in world-leading surgical units in the United States. First in laparoscopy and advanced gastrointestinal surgery at the University of North Carolina, and then in oesophageal surgery at the University of Southern California. As a faculty member of these universities, I provided advanced management of upper gastrointestinal disease to patients with an emphasis on minimally invasive surgery.
I am the director of the MUGISG oesophageal physiology laboratory performing pH and impedance studies and high-resolution oesophageal manometry.
