Jonathan Stretch

My practice has evolved to reflect the training and accumulated clinical experience I have developed during my nearly 30 year career as a specialist surgeon. After comprehensive plastic surgery training that has included understanding and managing the full spectrum of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery patients, I have also developed a very substantial experience in all forms of skin cancer including melanoma. I am a member of both the Plastic Surgery and Surgical Oncology sections of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.   

I currently manage a wide spectrum of patients requiring a broad range of plastic surgery skills, including general reconstructive and cosmetic issues, together with patients presenting with a whole range of skin cancer problems. The skin oncology patients invariably require general plastic surgery skills to obtain the best functional and aesthetic results, in addition to optimal oncology outcomes.  


Following medical school & surgical training in Sydney, Jonathan went to the Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford to develop further clinical experience in a Craniofacial Surgery Fellowship.

During that period he was provided with a unique opportunity to undertake research that resulted in him being awarded a doctorate (PhD) from the University of Oxford.
