Dr Richard Ward-Harvey completed his undergraduate medical training (BScMBBS) at the University of New South Wales in 2000, and worked at various hospitals in NSW such as Royal Prince Alfred and St Vincents before electing to undergo Vascular Surgery training. He did this at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Concord Hospital, Princess Alexandra Hospital, and the Gold Coast Hospital. He has gained his Masters of Surgery (University of Sydney), and completed his Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (Vascular). He now has appointments at the Gold Coast Hospital, Pindara Hospital, Gold Coast Private Hospital, and John Flynn Hospital. Most of his elective private operating is at Pindara Hospital.
Currently Dr Ward-Harvey is an Assistant Professor at Bond University, and a member of the Pindara Hospital Medical Advisory Committee.
Dr Ward-Harvey has extensive training in both open and endovascular (minimally invasive) techniques for both arterial and venous disease, and will always seek to tailor the treatment to the patient, rather than the other way around.
The Gold Coast Vascular practice site is situated at Suite 2, 189 Ashmore Rd, Benowa (The Professional Centre). There is parking in marked bays under the building, or in Benowa Gardens Shopping Centre right next door. There is a patient drop-off zone at the front entrance, for ease of access for patients with mobility difficulties.
We have two wonderful secretaries, Deb and Amber. They will do their very best to help you with phone enquiries and appointments, and to make sure you are comfortable in the rooms.
