Rhinologist, Consultant Surgeon, Auckland City Hospital; Professor in Surgery, The University of Auckland, Auckland, NZ
am a rhinologist with particular interest in endoscopic sinus and medial skull
base surgery. I am a Consultant Surgeon at Auckland City Hospital and have my
private practice at Mauranui Clinic in Epsom, and a Professor in Surgery at the
University of Auckland.
The focus of my research has been the interaction
between the local immunity of the sinonasal mucosa and the sinus microbiota in
the pathogenesis of chronic rhinosinusitis. This condition is characterized by
its intractability despite treatment with prolonged courses of antibiotics.
