I grew up in Perth and Canberra. I studied Medicine at the University of New South Wales. I completed my internship and junior medical resident training in Sydney before moving back to Western Australia for orthopaedic training, which I completed in 2000. I then completed 18 months of Post-Fellowship training in sports surgery, upper limb and knee surgery.
I commenced private practice in Bunbury in July 2001.
I perform arthroscopic and open surgery for shoulder and knee problems, as well as total hip arthroplasty. Over the years I have developed a particular interest in shoulder surgery. I regularly attend international shoulder workshops, meetings and live surgery. In 2005 I was one of the first surgeons to perform reverse total shoulder arthroplasty in Western Australia. I am also experienced in Orthopaedic trauma and participate in the on-call trauma roster at Bunbury Regional Hospital.
I prefer not to treat elective hand, foot or ankle problems.
I operate at Bunbury Regional Hospital, St John of God Hospital (Bunbury) and Busselton District Hospital.
I provide a ‘no gap’ service with all health funds for surgery.
I have a strong personal interest in sports, both as a spectator and a participant. My wife is a General Practitioner with an interest in Sports Medicine. Currently my wife and two teenage children live in Northern Italy, however, later in 2017 my wife and daughter will return to Australia to allow her to complete upper high school. My son is a member of the Italian National Short Track Ice Racing Team.
