Catherine Ell

Medical Secretary

Catherine joined Dr Pope’s practice in 2010. She had a short break from Medical Secretarial work over a couple of years to focus on family and her artistic practice of sculpting. Now, with 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren, she has returned to work with Dr Pope two days a week at the Mater Hospital.

Catherine brings over 30-years of experience working in medical administration including radiology, general practice and neurosurgery. It is imperative to Catherine that all patients are cared for with kindness, compassion and reassurance. She hopes the knowledge she has gained working in both New Zealand and Australia can assist patients in making “the medical world” seem less daunting.

Dr Raoul Pope is a highly experienced Neurosurgeon and sub-specialised Spine Surgeon with 20+ years of experience. He consults and operates across Sydney.

Dr Pope completed a sub-specialised, dedicated, international training fellowship in complex neurosurgical and orthopaedic spine surgery at a recognised, high-volume Centre of Excellence in spine surgery, in Canada.

He offers telehealth consultations and welcomes both private and public patients.
