MY PROFESSIONAL SYNOPSIS:

I obtained my undergraduate medical degree (MD) with honours from an EU country. After working for five years overseas, I came to New Zealand and undertook five years’ general surgical training and was awarded “FRACS” in General Surgery by Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) in 2014. After FRACS, I worked as a general surgeon for 2 years (a year in NZ, and in year 2016 I was a staff specialist in Bundaberg hospital in Queensland). During these two years, I had a very broad general surgical practice and managed a wide variety of acute as well as elective surgical conditions. I am also GESA (Gastroenterology Society of Australia) certified and have been independently performing colonoscopies and gastroscopies in adults for over 4 years. In year 2017, I undertook 2 years’ post-fellowship (sub-specialist) training (PFT) in “Breast Oncoplastic and Endocrine Surgery” with The Breast Society of Australia and New Zealand (BreastSurg ANZ). For first year of PFT, I was in Calvary and Canberra hospitals, and for 2nd year (2018) I was appointed in Nepean Public hospital in Sydney. In the sub-specialist training, I gained extensive experience in managing benign and malignant breast conditions with the use of level 1 and level 2 oncoplastic techniques (Implant and flap based breast reconstructions / augmentations as well as breast reductions). I was also trained to manage endocrine surgery conditions i.e. thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands. I also learnt to manage surgical conditions of salivary glands (parotid and submandibular glands), skin cancers including melanoma as well as soft tissue sarcoma.
