Special areas of interest

Dr Seton is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and has a special interest in complex colorectal and abdominal wall surgery.

Dr Seton graduated from the University of New South Wales.  She undertook her General Surgical training in the Northern Sydney Network and then post-fellowship colorectal training at Royal North Shore Hospital.  She completed further colorectal training in the United Kingdom.  She completed the Colchester Laparoscopic Fellowship (part of the Royal College of Surgeons Senior Clinical Fellowship Scheme) and was appointed as a locum consultant colorectal surgeon there, where she specialised in laparoscopic surgery for both benign and malignant disease. 


At St Mark’s Hospital, London (a world-renowned specialist gastrointestinal hospital), she gained experience in the surgical and multidisciplinary management of complex coloproctology, in particular intestinal failure & rehabilitation (working in the Lennard-Jones Intestinal Rehabilitation Unit,


one of the United Kingdom’s two accredited national reference centres for severe intestinal failure), and pelvic floor pathology (working with the United Kingdom’s largest specialist biofeedback team and with the Sir Alan Parks Physiology Unit); alongside complex inflammatory bowel disease surgery, intestinal polyposis, abdominal wall reconstruction as well as advanced proctology.

Dr Seton is appointed as a Visiting Medical Officer at both Royal North Shore and Ryde Hospitals.
