Dr Blennerhassett - "I don’t keep count but I’ve done over 20 thousand operations over the past 25 years since first picking up a scalpel. The shortest operation was only a few minutes and the longest was 36 hours. The youngest patient I have operated on was only a few hours old and the oldest was 97 years-old. My weekly theatre lists includes cosmetic and breast surgery cases, as well as hand surgery and cancer surgery. I feel very privileged to have worked with amazingly talented surgical, anaesthetic and theatre staff in Perth’s hospitals and overseas."
When away from work, Dr Blennerhassett's spare time is spent with his family, enjoying the ocean and WA’s beautiful coastline. He is a keen swimmer and surfer.
