About Me


My practice of surgery is defined by three main principles & pillars:

Excellence & the highest standard in surgical care.
  • Fellowship of Royal Australasian College of Surgeons
  • Employed by Melbourne’s most renowned public hospitals including The Austin and The Alfred.
  • Appointments at Melbourne’s best private hospitals including Cabrini, The Epworth and Holmesglen.
Ethical billing and affordable healthcare.
  • Pensioners and health care card holders are bulk billed for private consultations
  • Most procedures are “no gap”
Education and teaching
  • Each appointment is 20-30 minutes, whether private or bulk billed, new or review – to ensure patients leave feeling well informed and educated about their conditions and options.
  • Our website is intended to be used as a reference for patients and general practitioners alike.
  • Mr Farah is the current supervisor of training for Vascular Surgery at The Austin, entrusted to educate the next generation of vascular surgeons.
