Profile
My name is Dr Paul Dunkin and I will be your Anaesthetist. I work with a group of highly trained, innovative, enthusiastic surgeons who embrace and use the latest medical technology. I will work closely with your surgeon to ensure you receive the best care possible.

I am a fully qualified medical specialist in the fields of Anaesthesia and Medical Perfusion. I have been specifically trained in this area for over a decade. I completed my studies with the help of scholarships from the Royal Australian Navy. I completed a Cardiothoracic Fellowship at St Vincent’s public hospital and was part of the Heart & Lung transplantation team for a number of years. I have a keen interest in Disaster / Remote Location / Humanitarian Relief medicine having supported the AFP with the RAN in the Solomon Islands (2003), NSW Dept of Health in Banda Aceh (2004 Tsunami) and Operation Open Heart in Vanuatu (2006).

As your Anaesthetist, my sole responsibility is to ensure your safety and well being.

In order for me to better understand your specific anaesthetic needs and requirements, I would appreciate you taking the time to fill out the pre operative questionnaire. The information you provide is invaluable in helping me choose the best anaesthetic for you. For your peace of mind I can assure you that the information you provide is completely secure, it will be seen only by me and I will delete it after your anaesthetic is given..

It might be necessary to call you prior to your procedure to discuss what the anaesthetic will involve and to go over any concerns you might have..

After your procedure I would appreciate you taking just a few minutes to fill out the Patient Experience Survey. Your answers are completely anonymous and will help me greatly in improving the way I care for patients in the future. I look forward to speaking to you in person.
