Medical Specialists

Specialist profiles included within our North Harbour web site are designed to offer GPs access to specialist information which may be of help to them in assessing treatment options. Southern Cross Hospitals recognises that GPs are best placed to advise and support their patients when considering any treatment, and making informed choices about suitable referral options. We naturally advise patients to refer to their GP in relation to all aspects of treatment, selection of providers and referral to medical specialists.

Professional Profile

Born and raised on the North Shore, I attended Rosmini College in Takapuna, and then entered Auckland Medical School. I performed my Orthopaedic Surgery training throughout Auckland and the North Island, and was awarded the NZ Orthopaedic Association Presidents Prize for Best Orthopaedic Trainee in NZ, in my graduating year.

I further sub-specialised in Hand surgery at the Hand and Upper Limb Centre in Canada where, amongst other things, I was pleased to learn percutaneous needle surgery as an alternative to traditional dupuytrens surgery. I also completed the Royal North Shore Hospital hand surgery fellowship in Sydney, Australia.

I chose to return to live on the Shore and work in public at North Shore hospital, doing hand and wrist surgery. In this role, I am also heavily involved with education and training of junior staff, and I am active in research and audit

My private practice is at the Shakespeare Orthopaedic Institute, based in the new building at 209 Shakespeare Road. I enjoy a close working relationship with local hand therapists and GPs.
