About Arthur

MBBCh (1985) – University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa
Diploma in Anaesthesia (1990) – UK
Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (FANZCA) – 1998
My initial undergraduate degree in medicine was obtained in South Africa. Soon after qualifying I became interested in anaesthesia and have subsequently been involved in this field of medicine for over twenty five years.

This has provided me with the opportunity to travel and work around the world in Africa, the United Kingdom, New Zealand and finally in Australia. I arrived in Australia in 1995 and completed my training for the fellowship (FANZCA) at Monash Medical Centre. From 1995 until 1999 I undertook research into the mechanism of pain transmission at Monash University. During this time I was also involved in the undergraduate medical teaching programme. In 2000 I commenced private practice in Melbourne.

Most of my work in private practice involves anaesthesia for neurosurgery. I also provide anaesthesia for ENT, maxillofacial, orthopaedic, gynaecological, vascular and general surgery. I feel it is important to maintain a broad interest in the different fields of anaesthesia and to keep in touch with all the latest developments in anaesthesia. To this end I have been participating in the Continuing Professional Development programme of my College since it was started.
