Rhinologist, Consultant Surgeon, Auckland City Hospital; Professor in Surgery, The University of Auckland, Auckland, NZ

I 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.
