Ask your GP or Physiotherapist for a referral to see me; in Hamilton, at either Pembroke House, or in Cambridge at Leamington or Cambridge Medical Centres. All private and ACC patients are welcome but you MUST have a referral from your GP or Physiotherapist.

I sub-specialise in shoulder and upper-limb surgery but also have expertise in hip and knee joint replacement and ACL reconstruction and arthroscopy. If you require an operation it will be performed at Braemar Hospital on Ohaupo Rd. Braemar is one of Hamilton's leading Private Hospitals.

Support Staff

A team approach is the only option for successful healthcare. Donna, my practice administrator, provides most of the back-room support and organisation required to keep things running smoothly. In the operating theatre I work with a dedicated group of experienced and highly trained medical professionals; each with their own role in ensuring you have an exemplary standard of care and safety.

My Qualifications

Medical Degree from Otago (MBChB) and Specialist Fellowship with NZ and Australian Surgical Colleges (FRACS). Member of the NZOA Shoulder and Elbow Society and the NZ Hand Society. Accredited for Orthopaedic Surgery at Braemar Private Hospital and Southern Cross Affiliated Provider for Joint Replacement. I also have a part-time Consultant position at Waikato Public Hospital.
