Dr Glenda Rudkin
Dr Glenda Rudkin is passionately devoted to her profession. As a student, she dedicated herself to her chosen career. After completing her medical degree at the University of Melbourne, she decided very early that anaesthesia offered opportunities in both the scientific and humanitarian aspects of medicine.
She believes in making a difference, in patient care, in creating a feeling of security in her patients. She believes that, as an anaesthetist, her role is both to apply her medical expertise with the highest patient quality care and to provide reassurance to those in her care. She understands that, for many, anaesthesia is an undiscovered territory, a world unknown and possibly frightening. Glenda offers a sense of calm, reassurance and reliability.
Her special interests are in pain management and regional anaesthesia for ophthalmic, orthopaedic, plastic and ambulatory surgery. She also has a current interest in obstetric and bariatric anaesthesia
Glenda is an integral part of a team of surgeons and nursing staff providing the highest quality patient care. She is an active member of Specialist Anaesthetic Services mentoring new Associates within her profession and ensuring that new and developing areas of Anaesthesia are adopted safely
She obtained her qualifications in anaesthesia in Adelaide, where she has been practising in both public and private medicine for many years.
Glenda is in possession of a wealth of knowledge which she has communicated both in her extensive publications in peer review journals and in her world wide teaching experience at conferences, symposia and in developing countries.
Glenda’s knowedge and experience of, and devotion to, her profession is outstanding.
Dr Rudkin is a member of the Australian Society of Anaesthetists and a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists.
