I graduated from Auckland University in 1979 and trained in Surgery in Wellington.
I was in Britain from 1988-1991 completing my post-fellowship training and specialising in endoscopic surgery.
I began my consultant practice in Wellington in 1991 and was the first surgeon in Wellington to perform the majority of the laparoscopic procedures performed today, including appendicectomy. I was also the first surgeon in Wellington to provide a private colonoscopy service.
I am a Fellow of Royal Australasian College Surgeons and I am a Member of Association of General Surgeons.
My primary place of work is Southern Cross hospital in Wellington City, and I have clinics in Porirua, Kapiti Coast and Upper Hutt.
