Michael is a subspecialist Gynaecological Oncologist. He is based in Hobart but sees patients from the North of the state at both Tamar OBGYN and the Launceston General Hospital as part of the Statewide Gynaecological Oncology Service. Michael is happy to help women referred for management of gynaecological cancers and pre-malignant and complex benign gynaecological conditions. Due to a number of factors, including the Tasmanian population and geography, all surgery is performed in Hobart at either the Royal Hobart or Hobart Private Hospitals.
Michael was born and raised in Geelong. He completed his medical degree at the University of Sydney and then his general training in obstetrics and gynaecology in places such as Sydney, Canberra, Wagga Wagga and Hobart. He then completed his subspecialty training in gynaecological oncology at the John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle and the Royal Brisbane and Women’s and the Mater hospitals in Brisbane. He also has a bachelor’s degree in science with first-class honours and a doctorate in pharmacology. It was his first time working in Hobart in 2008 that led to his decision to return to Tasmania to work as a subspecialist gynaecological oncologist and to raise a family.
Michael is dedicated to making sure women, and their families, who are diagnosed with gynaecological cancers get access to world class treatment. Not only surgery but also modern medical treatments including clinical trials. As such he remains an active member of the Australian Society of Gynaecological Oncologists and the Australian and New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group.
Michael is also a keen fisherman and enjoys spending his free time with his family including his four children.
