Dr Patrick Walsh is a gastroenterologist with expertise in endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic suturing, and advanced therapeutic and weight loss endoscopy.

Patrick graduated with a medical degree from the University of Otago in 1995. After moving to Sydney, he completed his basic and advanced gastroenterology training at St Vincent’s and Concord Hospitals, gaining experience in endoscopic ultrasound and advanced endoscopy.

He then sought further training in endoscopy, undertaking an advanced fellowship at Westmead Hospital, before moving to the USA in 2005 to pursue a fellowship in endoscopic ultrasound.

Since returning to Australia in 2006, Patrick has consulted at hospitals across Brisbane and established a successful private practice. Staying at the forefront of his discipline, he was the first surgeon in Australia to perform an Overstitch™ weight loss procedure, and is routinely invited to speak at expert meetings on the emerging role of endoscopy in weight loss surgery.

Better and fairer care. Always.

In a rapidly transforming world, St Vincent's has created a refreshed vision and strategy to help shape Australia's health and aged care future.
