About Us

Our mission is to provide personalised, high-quality perioperative care for surgical patients.  We have created a practice that we believe supports surgeons in achieving an effective and highly efficent operating theatre list and a patient in receiving nurse centred holistic care.


We are Masters qualified, highly experienced operating theatre nurses who believe in working with our surgeons and patients to provide a safe and comfortable surgical procedure. We work together to serve you and your entire family during your surgical journey. Our surgical assistants believe in providing comprehensive health care services to our patients in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We also believe in educating our patients as we work with them to achieve the best physical state possible. 


Each surgical assistant is a Nurse Practitioner endorsed by the Australian Health Practitioners Association and comes to our practice with years of perioperative experience in their area of specialty.  Our Perioperative Nurse Practitioners are members of the Australian College of Nurse Practitioners and are actively involved in research and the fast growing service that nurse practitioners can provide. Perioperative Nurse Practitioners as surgical assistants always consult with the attending surgeon prior to working with each patient in order to provide informed, consistent care at all times.
