Associate Professor Peter Nottle is currently Director of Upper GI Surgery at The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, a large unit with 10 surgeons combining both Upper GI and HPB Surgery. The unit specialises in the treatment of Upper GI Cancers, Bariatric Surgery, hiatus hernias, liver and pancreatic resection and also performs more than 300 laparoscopic cholecystectomies per year.

At The Alfred he has overseen the establishment of a multidisciplinary bariatric surgical service that now performs more than 300 bariatric procedures per year. This service is integrated into, and complements the upper gastrointestinal services at the hospital.

Associate Professor Nottle's own practice reflects his Unit interest with particular emphasis in Gastric and Oesophageal Cancer, Bariatric Surgery, hiatus hernia surgery, laparoscopic cholecystectomy and gastro-intestinal endoscopy.

He graduated from Monash University in 1970 and became a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 1978. Following his Fellowship he spent almost 2 years working in England developing his surgical skills, particularly in Upper GI surgery and gastrointestinal endoscopy. On return from the UK, he was appointed Visiting Surgeon to the Alfred Hospital and continued developing both these areas. In early 1990, he was the first surgeon to perform a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy using the French technique at The Alfred and supervised many workshops teaching laparoscopic cholecystectomy and other laparoscopic procedures over the subsequent years.
