In 2011, Dr Reid was appointed a consultant anaesthetist at the Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine at the Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital. He maintained his part-time public appointment until February 2014 at which time he transitioned his clinical practice exclusively into the private arena.

Dr Reid undertakes a wide variety of clinical anaesthesia cases in hospitals throughout southeast Queensland. His current special interests include:

  • Ophthalmic anaesthesia
  • Anaesthesia for surgery of the upper limb
  • Regional anaesthetic techniques
  • Monitoring and risk mitigation strategies for shoulder patients in the sitting position

Dr Reid’s public appointment and his private practice permit him to teach students and junior doctors.
