Mr Patrick Lyall MBChB, MMedSc(Hons), FRACS (Plast)

My training has taken me all over New Zealand and the World but I always felt drawn to Dunedin.

I was born in Dunedin and went to Medical School here (graduated 1992).

I received a scholarship to study and teach anatomy in Dublin (UCD, graduated 1995).

I trained in all the Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Departments in New Zealand (specialist training completed 2004) then subsequently returned to the UK to gain more experience in cosmetic, hand. breast, and microsurgery.

I returned to Dunedin in 2007 to start the Plastic Surgery Department and develop and teach a post-graduate anatomy course at the Medical School.

I work at Southern DHB and in private practise at Fernbrae House & Mercy Hospital Dunedin, Health Central Alexandra, Cromwell and Wanaka Medical Centres.
