I trained at the University of Cape Town and Groote Schuur Hospital, finishing my fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 1997. I have worked in the UK and done some training abroad. I maintain my professional standards by regularly attending congresses and meetings and keeping up to date with the relevant plastic surgery literature.

I have presented and published both locally and internationally and I regularly attend Plastic Surgery meetings.

I am the past head of the Cleft Lip and Palate Unit at Red Cross Children’s Hospital.

My wife, Di, has been a source of inspiration to me for many years. We have two lovely children, Noah and Eve. Noah was born with a Stahl’s ear which we corrected with splinting, not surgery.

I just wanted to thank you so much, I am  thrilled with my breast lift! I wish I had done it years ago.

I received  wonderful care from yourself, Danni and everyone at Tranquillity Clinic and  always felt assured and looked after. The whole process from my first  appointment till now has been very efficient and professional.
