I am a specialist Interventional and Hepatobiliary radiologist. Interventional Radiology (IR) is an independent medical specialty, which uses minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat conditions in almost every organ system in the body.
I perform a wide range of procedures, with a particular focus on interventional oncology – the minimally invasive diagnosis and targeted treatment of cancer. I also perform a large number of procedures not related to cancer.
I have a particular interest and extensive experience in the diagnosis, staging and treatment of primary and secondary liver cancers. As well as my interventional work, I am an acknowledged expert in advanced imaging of the liver, pancreas and biliary systems.
I trained in medicine at Oxford University in the UK, gaining a First. I gained my specialist qualification in Radiology in the UK in 2004. I then moved to Australia to undergo extensive subspecialty training in both Hepatobiliary and Interventional Radiology. Since 2008 I have been a Consultant Radiologist at Austin Health, working very closely with the Liver Transplant Unit and the Hepatobiliary Surgical Unit, as well as with other units.
I am an Executive member of the Abdominal Radiology Group of Australia & New Zealand. I am aClinical Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Melbourne. I have published a number of articles in peer-reviewed journals and am regularly asked to speak at major radiology conferences. I have an active interest in clinical research,and I am also the Chairman of the Austin Radiology Research committee.
Whilst I aim to provide evidence-based care and a service at the highest technical standard, I also believe strongly that communication is a crucial part of quality medical care, and I am always happy to discuss your case with you, your family or your doctors if there are any queries.
