We offer a referral based service for the evaluation of sports and other musculoskeletal injuries, plus medical problems relating or impacting on physical activity or athletic performance.
This includes imaging e.g. x-ray, ultrasound, CT, MRI and bone scans, which can be arranged in appropriate circumstances.
We provide treatment advice and specific interventions including joint and soft tissue injections, plus referral to orthopaedic and other specialists when necessary.
We are accredited providers for carded athletes under High Performance Sport New Zealand.
Over the past decade I have been the Team Doctor for several New Zealand Olympic and Commonwealth teams, and was the team doctor for the Chiefs Super 12 rugby team from 1997 to 2003. I am currently Medical Director for Rowing New Zealand.
I orginally trained in internal medicine and cardiology before changing to Sports and Exercise medicine specialist training. I have been based at Anglesea Sports Medicine since 2013. I am currently the team doctor for the Kia Magic Netball team and work one day a week as a research associate with the University of Waikato.
I have been based at Anglesea Sports Medicine since 2014 and I am the previous team doctor for the Chiefs Rugby team. My main area of subspecialisation is in tendon damage and the use of injection therapy.
