2020 Fellow

BIO

Trained in the snowy Swiss alps I found myself descending from Bern to Sydney (542m) in mid-pandemic September 2020 and was as exhilarated and surprised as I could have possibly been.

I had finished my orthopaedic training at Inselspital and was suddenly left with closed borders, varyingly-accurate news and two already packed suitcases that were starting to gather dust in the corner. Thanks to the relentless support of Jasmin Gwynne and Dr Cass and Dr Young I was able to commence this chapter of my career delayed – but right on time.

I have been very fortunate to have worked with talented professionals and gifted educators who have been tremendously supporting in my endeavours and have had a lasting influence in my understanding of orthopaedic surgery. This fellowship has fulfilled all my expectations of professional and personal development and I would recommend it to any orthopaedic surgeon seeking serious expertise in shoulder and elbow surgery.

Futhermore, Sydney is a vibrant city full of enticing happenings surrounded by a countryside full of adventurous opportunities. You’ll still find me motorcycling through the blue mountains and stopping for local beef pies between busy hand surgery days at Royal North Shore on my next fellowship.

Beyond clinical work I have research interests in shoulder pathology and service delivery and have co-authored a textbook on Orthopaedic Trauma aimed at newly appointed surgical trainees. Out-with work I enjoy running, climbing the hills of Scotland, and the occasional Whisky.
