In 2004 I finished my postgraduate specialist training in urology at the Klinikum Dortmund, Germany.
My wife and I moved to Tasmania in February 2005 and we now have 4 lovely boys who call Hobart home. Since moving I have been working as a consultant in the Department of Urology at the Royal Hobart Hospital.
In 2007 I obtained the Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) and started my private practice.
I am a member of the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand (USANZ), German Urological Society (DGU), and European Association of Urology (EAU) and served as the elected Tasmanian Representative Director on the Board of Directors of USANZ from 2015-2018.
My commitment to furthering my education and my field sees that I am regularly involved in the education of undergraduate medical students of the University of Tasmania and post-graduate doctors. I was instrumental in the introduction of fully laparoscopic upper urinary tract operations and green-light laser prostatectomy at the Royal Hobart Hospital. I act as a proctor for the Urolift procedure and have been training some of my colleagues in Tasmania. Since 2019 I have been able to offer advanced robotic surgery to patients within Tasmania. I am involved in research projects for prostate cancer with the University of Tasmania.
I am constantly furthering my training to ensure that I am able to give the best treatments possible for my patients.
I am a urological surgeon passionate about patient centred care.
I graduated from the University of Muenster in Germany in 1999 and was then awarded Doctor of Medicine in 2002.
