Dr Patel has over 35 years’ experience as a highly respected plastic and reconstructive surgeon. He is a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, the Australian Hand Surgery Society and the Harold Kleinert Society for Hand Surgery, and is a regular participant in cosmetic and plastic surgery conferences in Australia and throughout the world.
From 1997–2019 Dr Patel held several senior positions in the ACT, one being the Head of The Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Unit at the Canberra Hospital which is associated with the Australian National University (ANU) Medical School, a world leading University involving the supervision and training of prospective plastic and reconstructive surgeons. With experience gained over the years, Dr Patel has found that there are a large number of uninsured patients who do not wish to go on a public wait list and would rather be seen privately, quicker, and closer to home in Byron Bay.
Dr Patel has commenced consulting and performing minor procedures at the Mercato Medical Centre for skin cancer excisions, carpal tunnel treatment and Dupuytren’s contracture.
Procedures can also be done through the public and private healthcare systems.
