About Gavan

I am lucky enough to live in beautiful Five Dock Bay / Russell Lea. I enjoy all sports and have played many but fell in love with soccer (football!) at a young age and still play at a good amateur level despite my advancing years.

My special sports interests include soccer, touch football and both rugby codes.

I have a special interest in the treatment of knee, ankle and shoulder injuries. After my own very successful knee and ankle surgeries (performed by David Broe and Jeff Ling) I have a particular interest in post op rehabilitation.
