He is trained as an Advanced Life Support Instructor and regularly leads training courses for medical staff in this discipline. Alongside other Continuing Professional Development, he maintains an up-to-date knowledge and a broad skill-set which allows him to provide you with expert medical care during your surgical journey.
Dr Chris McGrath works at several private hospitals around Perth and can Anaesthetise for all surgical sub-specialties other than Cardiac Surgery. He has a special interest in Obstetric Anaesthesia, Orthopaedic, Spinal, Plastic and Cosmetic, Gynaecological and General Surgery disciplines. Through his sub-specialty training, Dr McGrath has advanced skills in Regional Anaesthesia for peri-operative pain management.
Dr Chris McGrath will always review your medical history pre-operatively to plan a safe Anaesthetic specific for you and your surgery. He will also call you prior to your day of surgery to answer any questions you may have. It is important that you complete the Precision Anaesthesia questionnaire and upload a current medical summary from your GP as an attachment to assist with planning. If you are to have significantly complex surgery or suffer with known complex medical issues, a consultation may be required in Dr McGrath’s rooms at Precision.
Dr Chris McGrath is a HBF preferred provider and this means that HBF patients will pay no additional out of pocket expenses or “funding shortfall” for his Anaesthetic service. All other health funds will incur an out-of-pocket expense. Dr McGrath aims to optimise the amount your health fund will contribute and the co-payment is proportional to the level of complexity and duration of surgery required. Please check with the Precision rooms for estimates and any Billing enquiries.
Dr Chris McGrath takes great pride in his work as an Anaesthetist and feels it is a privilege to care for you as his patient. Away from the hospital, he enjoys keeping fit at his local surf club where he also volunteers his time with water safety and patrols in summer. He also enjoys running, listening to music and playing Golf.
