Dr. David WilkinsonEndocrine Surgeon

Dr. David WilkinsonDr. David Wilkinson
Dr David Wilkinson’s endocrine surgery specialty includes management of simple thyroid nodules and over-active parathyroids as well as complex, recurrent, malignant, functional and hereditary conditions.
Having accrued more than 20 years experience in this specialty, Dr Wilkinson performs over 250 thyroid and parathyroid operations per year, and does more parathyroid surgery than any other Queensland surgeon.
Excellent outcomes are achieved when endocrine gland disease is treated by a sub-specialist who performs a narrow range of procedures frequently. Dr Wilkinson is one of a handful of surgeons who genuinely belong in this category. He tailors treatment to suit individual patient circumstances, using surgical techniques that are minimally invasive, where appropriate, thus reducing potential side effects.
His special interests include minimal access thyroid and parathyroid surgery, and intra-operative monitoring of the nerves to the voice box.
 
Training
After completing his Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) at the University of Queensland in 1989, and receiving his general surgical fellowship (FRACS) in 1996, Dr Wilkinson undertook a further three years of higher level specialty training and experience as a fellow in breast and endocrine surgery both locally and overseas in Bristol, England, where he worked closely with the late Professor John Farndon at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. He has worked in the breast and endocrine subspecialty since 1996, but now chooses to focus his work even more sharply on the endocrine part of the specialty.
