About Nathan

Nathan grew up on the Gold Coast where he completed a Bachelor of Exercise Science at Griffith University. He was awarded the Exercise Science Medal for graduating at the top of his class.
Nathan went on to study a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery at Griffith University, where he was awarded the University Medal for graduating with First Class Honours. He also received the Griffith Award for Academic Excellence during each of his seven years of study at Griffith University.
Throughout his career, Nathan has published fourteen research papers and presented his research both domestically and internationally.
Nathan has always been passionate about skin cancer. During his surgical training, Nathan and eleven of his friends formed the charity ‘Million Metres for Melanoma’ to improve the lives of those diagnosed with melanoma. Since then, they have broken two Guinness World Records and raised over half a million dollars for melanoma research.
Nathan operates on patients from all over Queensland, so can conduct your consultation in person or via telehealth. He personally excises over 1500 skin cancers each year, but also works alongside several Brisbane dermatologists to provide reconstruction following Mohs micrographic surgery.
Nathan is a member of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
