Biography

Dr John Gibbons graduated from The University of Queensland in 1988 and completed his advanced training at Greenslopes Private Hospital and the Royal Brisbane Hospital.

He later undertook advanced therapeutic and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatogram (ERCP) training at Sydney’s Westmead Hospital.

He returned to Brisbane and worked as a senior VMO at the Royal Brisbane Hospital for more than 10 years while setting up his private practice.

Dr Gibbons’ special interests include therapeutic endoscopy and colonoscopy, endomucosal resection, inflammatory bowel disease as well as ERCP.

He said therapeutic endoscopy now enabled the management of specific pre-malignant and early malignancies to be undertaken without the need for surgical resection.

Dr Gibbons said the area was continuing to develop with a broadening of the role of the therapeutic endoscopist providing further challenges and many benefits to patients.

His greatest professional achievement has been the establishment of a successful group practice, Gastro Services, which provides sessions at Mater Private Hospital Brisbane’s Endoscopy Unit.
