I am an ENT Surgeon who has qualified in New Zealand with 15 years of specialist experience in the private and public hospitals.

I am married with 3 children (aged 20, 15 and 10). I am a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons specializing in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck surgery. I trained in Dunedin and Christchurch prior to overseas experience in Australia and Wales. On return to Christchurch I have been in practice at the St George’s Medical Centre and at Christchurch Hospital.


Some of my interests in ear, nose and throat surgery include:
• Paediatric ENT conditions (glue ear, ear infections, adenotonsillar disease and obstructive sleep apnoea.
