Dr. Newton began his career towards plastic and cosmetic surgery at Sydney University to receive a degree in medicine. After completion, he returned to Newcastle for his Junior Medical and Advanced Surgery training, which was completed at Royal Newcastle Hospital, Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital, Wallsend Hospital, and Maitland Hospital. He then went to Melbourne for a couple of years to do his Plastic Surgery training at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Preston and Northcote Community Hospital, The Alfred Hospital, and the Queen Victoria Hospital. The following eighteen months would be spent in London, England at Mount Vernon Hospital to complete his training. Dr. Newton continues his education by attending national and international meetings on a regular basis.

Volunteer Work

Dr. Newton has performed charity work through Interplast, a not-for-profit organization that brings qualified surgeons to underdeveloped regions in the Pacific for reconstructive plastic surgery procedures they would otherwise not be able to afford. Dr. Newton was in fact the first Australian Interplast surgeon. On that first trip alone, he repaired the cleft lips and palates of 23 children in the Philippines. He has now completed 9 Interplast trips, performing largely cleft lip and palate surgery, and from a personal level has found this experience incredibly rewarding.
