Mr Adrian Pick graduated in 1993, from the Melbourne University Medical School then completed overseas fellowships at the MAYO clinic and the Toronto General Hospital. His interests include minimal access surgery for thoracic and cardiac surgery with emphasis on mitral valve repair and limited access aortic valve replacement. He is also committed to maximizing surgical treatment for both concomitant (often in conjunction with mitral or aortic valve procedures) and lone atrial fibrillation.
More recently he has embraced the transition to Hybrid surgery. He favours the Totally thoracoscopic maze for patients with persistent Atrial fibrillation who have symptoms, have failed catheter ablation or are intolerant to antiarrhythmic drugs or anticoagulants.
Mr Pick works in 5 regional hospitals around Melbourne, has instituted a Cardiac surgical service at Peninsula Private Hospital since 2011 and performs over 500 major Surgical procedures annually. He is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and a member of EACTS and ISMICS. He presents regularly at local and international meetings and has published widely.
