Our Surgeons

Dr Priscilla Martin

Dr Priscilla Martin is a General Surgeon and Laparoscopic Surgeon. Her particular interests lie in treating conditions of the pancreas, liver, and upper-gastrointestinal tract. As such, her surgical training has shown a specialised focus on the complex areas of hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery and upper-gastrointestinal surgery, including bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

Dr Martin has developed advanced skills in minimally invasive laparoscopic (keyhole) surgical procedures, reducing recovery time and optimising outcomes in procedures such as splenectomy, which have traditionally required lengthy hospital stays.

Dr Martin graduated from the University of Queensland in 2003 and was awarded a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery. Commencing her surgical training at the Royal Brisbane Hospital, in 2011 she completed her fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. With a focus on extending her training in advanced laparoscopic surgery, Dr Martin then accepted a position as Senior Registrar at Nambour General Hospital, and as a Fellow at The Holy Spirit Northside in Bariatric Surgery.

In 2013 Priscilla spent further time honing her surgical technique at St Vincent's Hospital in Melbourne as a Fellow in the Hepatobiliary and Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery unit. In her relatively short time there, Dr Martin was also appointed as an Honorary Hepatobiliary Fellow at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

Returning to the Sunshine Coast in 2014, Dr Martin is dedicated to further advancing her techniques and skills, and to sharing her knowledge with those she trains, both in the public and private sector. From 2014 she will treat patients at both Nambour Public Hospital and the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospitals.
