Dr Chris Rogan is passionate about the potential of image guided minimally invasive procedures to improve patient outcomes and treatment experience. He is motivated by patients obtaining great outcomes and being able to return to enjoying their normal lives with minimal downtime.
Dr Chris graduated Medicine from the University of NSW in 2002 with First Class Honours and went on to complete RACS basic surgical training prior to advanced training in radiology at RPA Hospital and subsequently sub-specialisation in image-guided procedures as an interventional radiologist.
After fellowship training at Imperial College London, Chris was awarded the Thomas Baker Travelling Fellowship grant which opened the door to his travelling internationally visiting interventional radiology units across the UK and USA to obtain broad exposure to current best practices. That year, Dr Chris was also awarded European Board of Interventional Radiology certification.
In 2021, Dr Chris became President of the Interventional Radiology Society of Australasia and in this role, he hopes to raise awareness among patients and referring doctors on their minimally invasive, cutting edge treatment options.
Dr Chris is currently involved in researching intra-arterial chemotherapy as well as novel embolisation applications. He is excited this year to build a new Department of Interventional Oncology at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse Cancer Centre. He has special interests in embolization as it applies to conditions including prostate enlargement and knee pain.
