Upon returning to Melbourne in late 1993, I took up consultant appointments at Austin Hospital in Heidelberg and Monash Medical Centre in Clayton. At these hospitals, I was able to treat patients with a full range of spinal disorders including scoliosis, spinal trauma and tumour, as well as degenerative spinal conditions. After Monash Medical Centre withdrew funding for scoliosis procedures, I elected to reduce my public hospital commitment to Austin Hospital only.
I have expertise in all areas of the spine including cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions. I regularly perform minimally invasive spine surgery (often referred to as MISS) which is apropriate for some lumbar spinal problems.
1n 1994, I established private practice at Epworth Hospital in Richmond where I continue to practice to the present time.
My current appointments include;
Head of Vertebral Column Surgery Austin Health Studley Road Heidelberg 3084
President of Spine Society of Australia 2012 -14
Senior Consultant Spinal Surgeon Epworth Hospital Erin Street Richmond 3121
