A/Prof Kellee Slater

MBBS (Hons) FRACS FACS
Hepatobiliary & General Surgeon
Liver Transplant Surgeon

I am a surgeon at the Princess Alexandra Hospital and Greenslopes Private Hospital. I specialise in surgery for all diseases of the liver, bile ducts and pancreas. I am a member of the liver transplant team at the Princess Alexandra Hospital. I am also a passionate general surgeon. My special interest is in complex hernia repair, especially incisional hernia and abdominal wall reconstruction after an abdominal catastrophe. I also love simple and complex laparoscopic (key-hole) gallbladder and bile duct surgery. I have trained in Brisbane and in the United States in liver and pancreas surgery as well as liver transplantation.
