I have been in practice in Nowra since moving to the region in 2009. Since then I have held appointments at Nowra Private Hospital, and also as the sole Orthopaedic Surgeon at Shoalhaven District Hospital. My practice has developed to involve a wide range of elective and emergency orthopaedic surgical services.
My surgical practice covers a wide range of elective and emergency orthopaedic surgery. I have a strong interest in arthroscopy, particularly the knee, shoulder, ankle and elbow. I have a strong interest in joint replacement, particularly of the knee, hip and shoulder. Being the sole surgeon on the trauma roster at Shoalhaven Hospital, management of fractures, tendon injuries and other emergencies remains a major part of my practice. I have a wide experience in the management of hip, knee, wrist, ankle, shoulder and other fractures and utilise the latest techniques to gain the best outcomes for my patients.

I have travelled extensively to further my orthopaedic education. Following my orthopaedic training in Australia, I undertook further training in Sports Orthopaedics and Upper Extremity surgery at the Melbourne Orthopaedic Group. I undertook a Fellowship at the Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine Institute in London Ontario and the Hand and Upper Limb Clinic in London Ontario where i was the inaugural Shoulder Fellow. I also undertook a Fellowship in Knee Surgery at the Mater Hospital in Sydney.
Since then I have continued my education in Orthopaedic Surgery. I regularly travel to meetings in Australia and overseas to keep up to date with the latest techniques and trends in Orthopaedics. I also regularly provide education to nurses and local doctors to update the community.
I have undertaken two research degrees and have had my theses published. My first thesis was involving Molecular Biology. My second was regarding the role of Arthroscopy in rotator cuff repair.
I have presented at numerous meetings in Australia and overseas. I have been published in journals as a result of my research in Australia and overseas. Most recently I was published as a result of research to confirm the safety of my techniques of shoulder surgery.
I have received a Masters of Sports Medicine from the University of New South Wales. I have been involved in coverage of Sporting teams both in Australia and overseas over many years. I maintain a strong interest in management of sporting injuries. My aim is to return you to your sport as quickly and best prepared as possible.
