His passion for assisting underprivileged patients led him to resign from public practice, to set up his own community oriented practice called The Kidney Hub.

The Kidney Hub provides dialysis to children and young adults either free or at a nominal fee. His professional interests include improving access to treatment of acute and chronic renal failure in Fiji and the Pacific, Interventional Nephrology and Kidney Health Advocacy.

  • Evaluation of Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Treatment of Acute Kidney Failure
