Orthopaedic Surgeon Waikato
Upper Limb Surgeon:
I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa and completed my undergraduate training at the University of the Witwatersrand (2002) before moving to South West London to continue with my orthopaedic training. I gained my Certificate of Completion of Training with the Royal College of Surgeons (UK) in 2015.
Thereafter, I relocated to New Zealand looking for a change of scenery and further subspecialty trauma training at Waikato Hospital. I was then fortunate to undertake a fellowship under the mentorship of two of New Zealand’s most well respected shoulder surgeons, Mr Thin Hong in Waikato, and Mr Peter Poon in Auckland.
In 2019 I was invited to take up a position as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Waikato Hospital focusing on traumatic and non-traumatic upper limb conditions including shoulder and elbow arthritis. In 2021 I commenced private practice which has allowed me to increase the use of my sub-specialty skills in arthroscopic and sports upper limb surgery.
