The wealth of experience derived from the complexity of patients treated whilst working at large tertiary hospitals has shaped Dr Rothwell’s current practice and continues to contribute to his ongoing professional development in his chosen Specialty of Anaesthesia.
Dr Rothwell’s primary aim during your surgery or procedure is to provide you with the best possible care. This involves many things including a thorough assessment of your health and on which type of anaesthetic is going to be the most suitable for your surgery.
