Career Summary

Biography

I am a colorectal surgeon at John Hunter Hospital and a Conjoint Associate Professor, University of Newcastle with an interest in improving the peri-operative management of surgical patients particularly with regards to surgical oncology.

In keeping with this I have completed a Bachelor of Science (UNSW), a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (UNSW), a Fellowship in Surgery (FRACS), a Fellowship in Colorectal Surgery (CSSANZ), a Masters in Surgery (USyd) and a Doctor of Philosophy (UoN). The bulk of my research is in the form of randomised clinical trials designed to enhance the recovery of patients undergoing surgery (particularly colorectal surgery for cancer).

I also have a keen interest in surgical education and have been the Network Director of Surgical Training for the Hunter New England region since 2010.

My current research projects include:

The Newcastle Skin Prep Trial (an RCT of 3300 patients designed to assess the best form of antiseptic skin preparation prior to surgery)

The PREDICT study (a prospective international multi-centre study, n=900, assessing the role of CRP in predicting colorectal anastomotic leakage)

The CAPS study (an early phase study on the role of cannabinoids for gastrointestinal surgical recovery)

The VET study (pilot study looking at VTE prophylaxis for major surgery)

The PIMCO study (assessing inflammatory mediators in colorectal cancer and their role in recurrence)

The DiCRePiT study (CRP trajectory in acute diverticulitis)

A prospective study assessing wound and gut microbiome in patients with colorectal cancer undergoing surgery 

Assessing the use of vacuum dressings on contaminated wounds

Assessing the role of humidified CO2 in colorectal anastomotic healing

© 2017 The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, Inc. BACKGROUND: Lower GI hemorrhage is a common source of morbidity and mortality. Tranexamic acid is an antifibrinolytic that has been shown to reduce blood loss in a variety of clinical conditions. Information regarding the use of tranexamic acid in treating lower GI hemorrhage is lacking. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this trial was to determine the clinical efficacy of tranexamic acid when used for lower GI hemorrhage. DESIGN: This was a prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial. SETTINGS: The study was conducted at a tertiary referral university hospital in Australia. PATIENTS: Consecutive patients aged >18 years with lower GI hemorrhage requiring hospital admission from November 2011 to January 2014 were screened for trial eligibility (N = 265). INTERVENTIONS: A total of 100 patients were recruited after exclusions and were randomly assigned 1:1 to either tranexamic acid or placebo. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The primary outcome was blood loss as determined by reduction in hemoglobin levels. The secondary outcomes were transfusion rates, transfusion volume, intervention rates for bleeding, length of hospital stay, readmission, and complication rates. RESULTS: There was no difference between groups with respect to hemoglobin drop (11 g/L of tranexamic acid vs 13 g/L of placebo; p = 0.9445). There was no difference with respect to transfusion rates (14/49 tranexamic acid vs 16/47 placebo; p = 0.661), mean transfusion volume (1.27 vs 1.93 units; p = 0.355), intervention rates (7/49 vs 13/47; p = 0.134), length of hospital stay (4.67 vs 4.74 d; p = 0.934), readmission, or complication rates. No complications occurred as a direct result of tranexamic acid use. LIMITATIONS: A larger multicenter trial may be required to determine whether there are more subtle advantages with tranexamic acid use in some of the secondary outcomes. CONCLUSIONS: Tranexamic acid does not appear to decrease blood loss or improve clinical outcomes in patients presenting with lower GI hemorrhage in the context of this trial. see Video Abstract at http://links.lww.com/DCR/A453.

© 2018 Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Background: Post-operative length of stay (LOS) is an increasingly important clinical indicator in general surgery. Despite this, no tool has been validated to predict LOS or readiness for discharge in general surgical patients. The de Morton Mobility Index (DEMMI) is a functional mobility assessment tool that has been validated in rehabilitation patient populations. In this prospective cohort study, we aimed to identify if trends in DEMMI scores were associated with discharge within 1 week and overall LOS in general surgical patients. Methods: A total of 161 patients who underwent elective gastrointestinal resections were included. DEMMI scores were performed preoperatively, on days 1, 2, 3 and 30 post-operative. Statistical analysis was performed to identify any association between DEMMI scores and discharge within 1 week and LOS. Results: Functional recovery (measured by achieving 80% of baseline DEMMI score by post-operative day 1) was significantly associated with discharge within 1 week. Presence of a stoma was associated with longer LOS. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve using functional recovery on post-operative day 1 as a predictor of discharge within 1 week is 0.772. Conclusion: The DEMMI score is a fast, easy and useful tool to, on post-operative day 1, predict discharge within 1 week. The utility of this is to act as an anticipatory trigger for more proactive and efficient discharge planning in the early post-operative period, and there is potential to use the DEMMI as a comparator in clinical trials to assess functional recovery.

Background: We sought to compare two synthetic injectable bulking agents, with known efficacy (PTQ¿: a silicone biomaterial and Durasphere ®: pyrolytic carbon-coated beads), in the form of a randomised clinical trial. Methods: Circumferential injection of either agent was performed under local anesthesia and sedation as a day-case procedure. The primary outcome measure was the Wexner incontinence scale. Secondary measures were the short-form 36 (SF-36) quality of life assessment and manometry (maximum resting and squeeze pressures). Follow-up was at 6 weeks, 6 and 12 months. Results: Thirty-five patients were randomised, 17 to PTQ® and 18 to Durasphere®. Early closure of the trial occurred, due to the removal of the agent PTQ®, from the Australian Pharmaceutical Benefits scheme. Wexner incontinence scores were significantly better than baseline, in both groups, at 6 weeks and 6 months (P < 0.05), although the improvements were not significant at 12 months. There was no significant improvement for either agent, from baseline, in mean SF-36 scores at any follow-up sessions. There was no significant difference between the two bulking agents, with regard to both Wexner and SF-36 scores, at any of the follow-up sessions. Complications occurred in one patient in the PTQ group (perianal abscess) and did not occur in any of the patients in the Durasphere group. Conclusions: This trial appears to show that both synthetic agents PTQ ® and Durasphere® are effective and safe, although long-term improvement is limited. In this trial, there appears to be no difference in efficacy between the two agents, over a 12-month follow-up period. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Italia.
