Biography

I have been a specialist hip and knee orthopaedic surgeon in Adelaide since 2004, with extensive experience of over 5000 hip and knee procedures. My key areas of expertise are hip and knee replacement surgery, arthroscopy of the hip and knee and anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. I operate regularly at Sportsmed, Calvary Wakefield and Calvary North Adelaide hospitals.

 

I strongly believe in the importance of long term outcomes in surgery, as well as research, continuing education and training the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons to ensure the safe application of innovative techniques. My background in electrical and electronic engineering has also stimulated my interest in the use of computers and robotic technology in surgery.

 

In 2006, two years after completing training, I was appointed Head of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Trauma at the Lyell McEwin Hospital. At the age of 36 I was the youngest ever orthopaedic surgeon to be appointed to such a position in Adelaide. Over the next few years I also enjoyed working part time dealing with sports injuries in elite athletes as a match day doctor for the Norwood Football Club in the SANFL. In 2010 I made the transition to full time private orthopaedic practice which continues to this day.
