I am a colorectal surgeon specialising in the management of diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. My special interests include colorectal cancer (including recurrent rectal cancer), appendiceal tumours, pelvic tumours (including presacral tumours), inflammatory bowel disease, diverticular disease, stomas, rectal prolapse and perianal conditions. I perform open, robotic and laparoscopic colorectal surgery, as well as colonoscopy, colonic stents and transanal endoscopic microsurgery.
I undertook my specialist training with the Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSSANZ), including a Colorectal Fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in the USA. I am also accredited with Conjoint Committee for Recognition of Training in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
I am the Director of the Colorectal Surgery unit at the Alfred Hospital and an adjunct Senior Lecturer with the Cabrini Monash University Department of Surgery.
