He has trained internationally, undertaking his specialist plastic surgery training at the UK’s world-renowned Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit. He qualified in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in 2012 at the Royal College of Surgeons in the UK and holds specialist registrations in both the UK and NZ.

Paul has also completed fellowships over the ditch in Australia, focusing on microsurgery, hand surgery and burn reconstruction. He finally returned to NZ in 2017, working out of Auckland’s Middlemore Hospital where he consults today. He is a compassionate surgeon who focuses on helping his patients, mostly to get back their quality of life, and recently including survivors of the Whakaari White Island tragedy.

Paul has two young children and enjoys spending time with his family. He enjoys the outdoors and is a running enthusiast, although he admits to spending more time running after his children than on the trails.
