James Sutherland


About James

I live and work in the wonderful peninsular of Balmain. I was a keen water polo player in my youth (so long ago), I follow the Richmond Tigers, enjoy the occasional game of golf and dream of owning a winning horse at Randwick!

My special sports interests include AFL, water polo, rugby union and triathlon, and as such, I tend to specialise in the treatment of knees and shoulders.
