Dr Anthony Porter

His private practice is divided between Adelaide Plastic Surgery and Glenelg Community Hospital, where he provides a diverse range of plastic surgery procedures. He is especially drawn to patients with skin cancers, hand problems and burns, who can all benefit from his expertise. He has a special interest in hand surgery and melanomas.

Apart from his clinical training, Anthony has also devoted himself to scientific research with four years’ experience in cellular and molecular biology. In 2000, he was awarded a PhD from Flinders University for a thesis studying neurophysiology. His research has been widely published in both clinical and scientific forums. In partnership with his colleagues at Adelaide Plastic Surgery, he provides a comprehensive, 24/7 emergency plastic-surgical service.

Married with two children, Anthony finds his weekends are taken up coaching kids’ sport. His other main pastime is reading, with crime fiction, history and psychology titles lining his shelves.
