Orthopaedic Surgeon M.B.,B.S, F.R.A.C.S. F.A.Orth.A

Gary  is an Orthopaedic Surgeon and Senior Lecturer of the University of Tasmania actively practising in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia.

He has a longstanding keen interest in the preventative aspects of health outcome and particularly before operating on patients.

Gary is confronted on a daily basis by patients who have weight related issues with their joint pathology and arthritis. Losing weight plays a significant role in the day to day management of his patients.

There are also broader opinions related to overall health and how a combination of both Fructose and Polyunsaturated Oils combine to create the “Perfect Storm” for a variety of conditions which are common in Modern society. These diseases are becoming more prevalent across the developing world as Western diet has been introduced.

Rather than telling patients to simply go away and lose weight the concepts borne in this web site are there to provide a real source for both patients and professionals to glean more information.

He has opened and mentors the Nutrition for Life – Diabetes and Health Research Centre based in Launceston and providing nutritional care around Tasmania and Australia.
