Take comfort in knowing you’ve chosen Brisbane’s best

As a first approach, our specialists will provide you with a care plan without relying on surgery. As a next step, if surgery is recommended, where possible it’ll be minimally-invasive, and if necessary we also offer robotic colorectal surgery.

Meet our colorectal surgeons

Both surgeons are Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) — meaning they’ve completed several years of rigorous surgical training. And building on that foundation, have completed subspecialty training in colorectal surgery under the Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSSANZ). When it comes to dealing with those intricate body parts, you’re choosing surgeons who know what they’re doing.
