Dr Hamish Mace
MBChB (Otago), FANZCA, DRANZCOG
I am a locally trained specialist anaesthetist. Following my undergraduate medical degree in New Zealand, I moved to Australia and completed residency and anaesthesia training in Perth. I have undertaken subspecialty fellowships in obstetric anaesthesia (King Edward Memorial Hospital), retrieval medicine (Royal Flying Doctor Service WA) and liver transplant anaesthesia (University of Toronto, Canada).
My practice is shared across the public and private health sectors. I hold a public appointment at Fiona Stanley Hospital where I am involved in anaesthesia for upper gastrointestinal and liver surgery and obstetric anaesthesia. I also practice in acute pain medicine. I regularly anaesthetise children in private practice, and work across a range of subspecialties including ENT and orthopaedics.
I am the Perioperative Clinical Lead for the Department of Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine at Fiona Stanley, and Associate Lead for its Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Programme. My interests include anaemia management, transfusion (and its alternatives) and coagulation. I direct the pre-operative anaemia screening and smoking cessation clinics at Fiona Stanley, where I am also heavily involved in teaching and research. I am a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists Medical Education Committee.
