He is Director of Geelong Vascular Service - a practice committed to the care of patients with arterial or venous disease. Specialist treatment of aortic aneurysms, carotid and lower limb artery diseae in hospital, is complimented by ambulatory outpatient treatment of varicose veins by laser therapy.

The management of recalcitrant lower limb ulcers is of particular interest.
