About

I am an orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest and extensive experience in all aspects of knee surgery. I have been practising in Brisbane since 1991. My commitment is to achieve the best possible outcome for each individual patient. I provide appropriate non-operative and operative management options for all knee conditions.

I undertook my basic medical and specialist orthopaedic training in South Africa. This was followed by 18 months further training in knee surgery in the United Kingdom in Nottingham and Derby. On arrival in Australia I obtained my orthopaedic fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 1990 and worked at the Royal Brisbane Hospital as Acting Director of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. I have worked as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Greenslopes Private Hospital and the Australian Defence Force since 1992.

My principal consulting rooms are located at Greenslopes Specialist Centre, within the grounds of Greenslopes Private Hospital, where I conduct all my private operating. I also consult at Capalaba and Sunnybank.

I keep up to date with current advances in the field of knee surgery and regularly attend national and international meetings and workshops. I undertake research and presentations about knee-related topics. I am involved in the teaching of medical students and orthopaedic trainees. I have held portfolios with the Queensland State Committee of the Australian Orthopaedic Association and with the Queensland Regional Orthopaedic Training Committee.
