I am an experienced obstetrician and gynaecologist with a special interest and expertise in minimally invasive surgery.
During your consultation at the Norfolk Centre, I will listen to your concerns and discuss treatment options that best suit your lifestyle and individual circumstances. I believe in shared, informed decision making and respecting your choice.
After obtaining a science degree (BSc) from the University of Melbourne, I studied medicine and surgery (MBBS) at the Australian National University in Canberra. I had the privilege of completing specialist training at Westmead Hospital in Sydney, achieving Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (FRANZCOG).
I was selected for the highly coveted two-year accredited fellowship with the Australasian Gynaecological Endoscopy & Surgery Society (AGES), during which time I developed skills in minimally invasive gynaecological surgery with the Sydney West Advanced Pelvic Surgery unit (SWAPS), and achieved high distinction in the Masters degree in Surgery at Western Sydney University.
I have always been interested in rural health, and I moved to Bendigo in 2020. I am pleased to offer a comprehensive gynaecological service to the region, applying the skills that I have developed during advanced fellowship training.
As an obstetrician, gynaecologist, husband and father, I understand and appreciate the importance of women’s health.

Investigation of infertility
Endosee is a compact, handheld device that allows for direct visualisation of the uterine cavity, using a thin flexible sterile camera attached to a colour monitor. It can be used to investigate abnormal bleeding and remove intrauterine devices.
Convenient, same-day assessment

Laparoscopy is commonly referred to as “keyhole” surgery, and is used to diagnose and treat a range of gynaecological conditions. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, generally with same-day discharge or an overnight stay. The benefits of this minimally invasive approach include smaller incisions with fewer wound complications, less post-operative pain, earlier recovery, and improved cosmetic outcome.
You will need a letter of referral from your doctor, including a list of any health issues and regular medications. Please bring your Medicare card, along with your private health insurance details where applicable. It is greatly appreciated if you can bring the results of any relevant investigations, including blood tests, CST (pap smear), and imaging such as ultrasound, CT or MRI.
The Norfolk Centre is committed to ensuring informed financial consent. The cost of an initial visit (item 104) is $200, and follow-up (item 105) is $100. You will receive a rebate from Medicare for these consultation fees, along with any outpatient procedures. Surgical fees are set according to recommendations from the Australian Medical Association (AMA). There is usually an out-of-pocket ‘gap’ between this amount and what is covered by private health insurance. Please note that this fee is separate to any hospital excess or anaesthetic fee.
