Dr. Harry Koumoukelis is currently a visiting anaesthetist at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Prince of Wales Private and Macquarie University Hospital in Sydney.
His training was enhanced by a fellowship in paediatric anaesthesia at the Hospital for Sick Children and neuro anaesthesia at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, Canada.
This has led to his major interest in paediatric and adult neuro-anaesthesia and neonatal anaesthesia. Dr Koumoukelis has anaesthetised over 12 000 children in his career. He also performs regional anaesthesia for ambulatory and inpatient adults, undergoing shoulder, hip and knee surgery. He was a tutor for the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists and sits on a number of medical advisory boards for major private hospitals in Sydney.
Reid came to us from UCSD, San Diego, with a glowing reference from one of my old and dear friends, Larry Marshall. Those of you who know Larry, know that Larry does not mince his words. If Larry doesn’t like someone, then that person knows it and so does everyone else, even if they don’t want to know! So when Larry told me that Reid was a solid doctor with excellent clinical skills, I believed him.
So far, Reid has not disappointed us…..stay tuned…..he may topple all the previous fellows when it comes time to rank the best of the best!
