General, Laparoscopic and Upper Gastro-Intestinal surgeon
Born and bred in Australia, my surgical training was completed in Melbourne in 1990. After ten years working as a general surgeon in a rural community in Australia, my family and I relocated to Scotland where I was appointed as a consultant General and Upper GI surgeon to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, St John's hospital, Livingston, and the Spire Murrayfield hospitals. My colleague, Mr Andrew de Beaux, and I have helped develop the bariatric (weight loss) surgery service in Edinburgh as an extension of the gastro-intestinal and complex laparoscopic surgery that we have both been doing for many years.
