Medical > Doctor and Medical Specialities
Growing up in Sydney, I was always interested in keeping fit and participated in a wide variety of sports - resulting in my fair share of sporting injuries.
This led me to studying Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney as I was really keen to explore how to make valuable changes to a person’s quality of life, including my own! Once I graduated, I was involved in providing physio support to a number of rugby, netball, soccer and water polo teams, at both club and state level.
After several years practising as a Physiotherapist, I felt that I could make a greater contribution by studying Medicine; not a decision to be taken lightly as it took a further 15 years of study to become a fully qualified Orthopaedic surgeon.
