Having trained in Adelaide and gaining international experience in anaesthesia for cardiothoracic surgery, paediatric anaesthesia and anaesthesia for plastic surgery, Ian returned to Adelaide in October 1995 as Consultant in Anaesthesia at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Ian’s clinical commitments included cardiothoracic anaesthesia, anaesthesia for spinal surgery and anaesthesia for plastic surgery including head and neck cancer and microvascular flaps. This latter work has resulted in Ian being invited to Malaysia with the Australian Craniofacial Foundation.
In April 2002 Ian joined Stace Anaesthetists as an Associate, maintaining a part-time commitment at the Royal Adelaide Hospital as a Senior Consultant.
Ian's interests include Thoracic Anaesthesia, Anaesthesia for Cardiac Surgery (including Transoesophageal Echocardiography), Anaesthesia for Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, and Anaesthesia for Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery (including paediatric patients).
