Dr Richardson is an Australian surgeon with over 20 years experience as a consultant surgeon dealing with a broad range of medical and surgical problems.
He graduated from Sydney Medical School at the University of Sydney, undertook surgical training at Westmead Hospital and was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) in 1986. He received additional training at Lille University in France and at Oxford University in the UK where he was a clinical lecturer.
Dr Richardson’s specialty interests relate to the management of patients with liver and pancreatic tumours and, in particular, the multi-disciplinary management of colorectal liver metastases. He treats both benign and malignant tumours of the stomach and oesophagus as well as the adrenal gland.
He also has a specialist interest in gallbladder surgery and the management of gallstones as well as hernia repairs, varicose vein surgery and the treatment of hyperhidrosis. He also has expertise in treating patients with neuroendocrine tumours - these tumours are quite rare and are managed by a small number of surgeons in Sydney.
