Professional Profile

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.
