Sam was raised on a cattle property in remote North Queensland before moving to Townsville to attend Medical school at James Cook University which fostered a passion for improving regional access to women’s health care. After completing medical school in 2009 he moved to Mater Mothers Hospital in Brisbane to chase a comprehensive education in Women’s Health. His Gynaecology and Obstetrics training occurred throughout metropolitan, regional and rural Queensland with specific exposure to Minimally Invasive Gynaecological Surgery and Rural and Remote healthcare. He spent an advanced training year in the Advanced Laparoscopic Surgical Unit on the Gold Coast. He then moved to South West Victoria to continued to ad to his skill set by completing an additional Advanced Laparoscopic Fellowship year under the mentor-ship of Dr Dalton through Ballarat. During this time he focused specifically on complex endometriosis surgery, management of large multi-fibroid uteri and hysteroscopic resections, all performed through minimally invasive techniques.
Sam’s career aim is to empower his patients and allow them to experience first-class treatment despite being in a regional setting. Sam has made a permanent relocation to Warrnambool with his wife, Belinda, and their two children. He enjoys caring for women experiencing all gynaecological issues but has a special interest in Endometriosis and pelvic pain and Minimally Invasive Gynaecological Surgery.
