What is a Sports Physician?
Sports Physicians are specialist medical doctors who are highly trained in the non-surgical management of all musculoskeletal injuries, as well as sports team care. After completing a medical degree at University, Sports Physicians complete 4 years of specialist training governed by the Australasian College of Sports Physicians (ACSP) and are thoroughly examined in their knowledge through both written and clinical examinations.

I have been a director at Premier Orthopaedics since 2005, appreciate all referrals, and will care for all patients to the best of my ability. As a Sports Physician and musculoskeletal specialist, I also treat Workers Compensation patients as well as incidental injuries.

My specific interest areas are tendon injury, children and adolescent injury, shoulder and elbow injury, knee injury, cricket injury, and football injury.
