Dr Neil Dooney MBBS (Adel), FANZCA
I completed my medical degree and commenced anaesthetic training in Adelaide. This included time at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Flinders Medical Centre, and also the Royal Darwin Hospital. At the end of anaesthetic training, I spent 18 months at Harborview Medical Centre in Seattle, a hospital attached to the University of Washington (UW), and cared for patients undergoing complex general, neurosurgical, orthopaedic, head and neck, and traumatic surgery. During this time, I also co-authored two peer reviewed papers, an article for UpToDate, and presented at the American Society of Anesthesiology meeting. I stayed on as faculty at UW prior to commencing as a staff anaesthetist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
I settled in Melbourne in late 2012, where I am a Visiting Anaesthetist with Austin Health and Eastern Health (Box Hill, Maroondah and Angliss Hospitals). I am accredited at most major private hospitals in Melbourne. I enjoy all aspects of adult anaesthesia, including preoperative optimisation and postoperative recovery. I regularly anaesthetise children and obstetric patients, and maintain current practice through participation in continuing medical education with ANZCA.
