Surgeon Profile

Welcome to my website.

I established The Breast Centre in 1999 to provide comprehensive care for all breast problems. I work closely with a team of specialists including pathologists, radiologists, oncologists and plastic surgeons to provide my patients with the best possible care. Many of this team have worked together for more than twelve years providing a wealth of shared knowledge and experience.

I have a special interest in the role of ultrasound in improving breast assessment, and have attended, and run training courses on the use of ultrasound by surgeons. I have been awarded the Certificate in Clinician performed ultrasound by ASUM that recognises suitable training and competence in breast ultrasound.

I have attended international conferences on breast cancer surgery, breast reconstruction and oncoplastic surgery and have been able to incorporate many of these principles into my practice. I have extensive experience in all aspects of breast surgery.

I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 1982, and was awarded my General Surgical Fellowship in 1992. I moved to New Zealand with my family in 1994. I am married to Rose and we have two adult sons. Shane has completed his medical degree in Auckland and has now joined  Craig in managing a computer software company called Language Perfect that they developed six years ago.

When away from the office I enjoy sailing, snorkelling and exploring the South Pacific.
