“My plans will always aim to maximise your comfort and safety.”

Kat qualified as a doctor from Southampton University in the UK in 2004, and gained her specialist qualification in the UK and Australia, now holding a Fellowship of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (FANZA).

Her main area of interest is in orthopaedic anaesthesia. She has also completed an advanced airway management fellowship, and has years of experience in critical care. As well as working alongside Dan, Kat works in the public sector at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital.

Kat likes to ring patients prior to the operation to discuss health concerns, medications and allergies, and to make a plan for each patient’s anaesthetic and pain relief needs. She says that in orthopaedic surgery, “nerve block” techniques in conjunction with sedation or general anaesthesia are commonly recommended, and she will discuss specific details and risks with you in advance.
