Dr Gilberto Arenas

Originally from Brazil, Gilberto gained a vast experience in anaesthesia throughout his training in a major Tertiary Hospital in São Paulo and also as a consultant providing safe anaesthesia services for several private hospitals in the region.

After a couple of years of marriage to his Australian wife Monica, a decision was made to move to Australia and start a new phase in his career.

Gilberto joined Stace Anaesthetists in 2019 and currently works across all major private hospitals in Adelaide and is heavily involved in the teaching and training of trainee anaesthetists at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
