Dr. Ian Hogarth
Dr Ian Hogarth graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1989. Following residency at The Western Hospital he commenced anaesthesia training at The Austin Hospital in 1993. After completion in 1998 he then spent 3 years in the UK as Consultant in Anaesthesia (Greenwich District Hospital, London 1999-2001, Guy’s and St.Thomas’ Hospital, London 2001). He returned to Australia to a full-time public position as staff specialist in Anaesthesia at The Northern Hospital in Epping. This busy role saw the provision of anaesthesia for a wide range of surgical specialties (General Surgery, Thoracics, Vascular, Obstetrics, Gynaecology, Urology, Plastics) as well as teaching a vast number of anaesthetic trainees that rotate through The Northern at various stages of the training program.
A change of pace in 2019 saw Ian reduce and relocate his public work to Kyneton, to facilitate the provision of services in a regional area. He also maintains a busy practice in Melbourne as a Visiting Anaesthetist to many hospitals. Ian provides anaesthesia for most surgeries, often plastics (reconstructive and cosmetic), ENT, gyneacology, spinal and general surgery.
Ian has significant interest in the teaching and delivery of anaesthesia in the developing world. He has made several trips to Mongolia to assist with teaching and workshops for the Mongolian Society of Anaesthesia, and has provided teaching and workshops to the Cambodia Society of Anaesthesia in Phnom Penh. He is actively involved in Interplast Australia and New Zealand, which provides services and training in reconstructive surgery to the Asia and Pacific region. Ian has been involved in missions to Myanmar, Bangladesh, Papua New Guinea and Fiji, and is a current member of the Clinical Governance Committee.

When not providing anaesthesia services Ian spends time chasing kangaroos out of a very small vineyard to express his devotion to pinot noir (with limited success).
