Dr Scott Whiting

After growing up in Townsville and representing the region as an elite sportsman, I am now committed to providing quality health and surgical outcomes for the North Queensland community.

  • Upper GI
  • Bariatrics
  • General surgery
My personal goal is to ensure the people of North Queensland have access to world class surgical procedures, delivered by highly trained specialists.

Returning home to Townsville from the UK I am now at North Queensland Minimally Invasive Surgery (NQMIS) and work from the Mater Hospital and the Townsville University Hospital.

Born and raised in Townsville

Following a sporting career in rugby league with the North Queensland Cowboys I pursued my medical training. I am passionate about North Queensland and providing world class surgery to my community.  My extensive overseas training, positions me uniquely with both fellowships in Bariatrics (ANZMOSS) and minimally invasive Upper GI surgery (ANZGOSA). I welcome patients across the North Queensland community with the aim of providing caring and comprehensive support throughout their entire surgical journey

Living with upper GI problems?

Healthy upper GI is the
foundation of life quality.
