John Lee
Specialist Anaesthetist & Intensive Care Specialist


I graduated MBChB from the University of Otago in 1998 aiming to become an orthopaedic surgeon; however I subsequently retrained in both the specialies of anaesthesia and intensive care medicine. My broad skillset is a result of my seeking experience in most of the major hospitals in New Zealand, volunteering in Bulgaria as well as undergoing further training in the United Kingdom and Singapore. Following this somewhat unique path through dual speciality training, I completed my specialist training in 2014.

I currently maintain a public practice in intensive care medicine at the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Hopsital where I'm heavily involved in junior doctor and medical student training. My anaesthetic practice is privately based through Wesley Anaesthesia and I visit all major private hospitals in metropolitan Brisbane. My areas of particular clinical interest are difficult airway management (especially outside of the operating theatre complex) and ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia. At present, I mainly provide anaesthesia for ophthalmic surgery, endoscopic procedures as well as a vast array of major general, colorectal, vascular, orthopaedic and spinal surgery.

Being a dual specialist has given me the skills to act as a complete perioperative physician as my training has comprehensively encompassed the domains of preioperative medicine, intraoperative management and postoperative care in the intensive care unit. This allows me to smoothly guide your journey through the perioperative arena and provide you with the very best clinical care throughout your hospital stay.
