 Dr Blennerhassett - "I don’t keep count but I’ve done over 20 thousand operations over the past 25 years since first picking up a scalpel. The shortest operation was only a few minutes and the longest was 36 hours. My weekly theatre lists includes cosmetic and breast surgery cases, as well as reconstructive surgery. I feel very privileged to have worked with amazingly talented surgical, anaesthetic and theatre staff in Perth’s hospitals and overseas."
