Dr. Julie Miller, Endocrine Specialist Melbourne
Dr. Julie Miller

Specialist Endocrine Surgeon
Minimal Access Thyroid, Parathyroid, and Adrenal Surgery

Dr. Miller is a specialist surgeon with specific expertise in endocrine surgery. Originally from the United States, she became a fully qualified surgeon in New York City before moving to Australia in 2001. She is a consultant surgeon at Royal Melbourne Hospital, Epworth Freemason's, and Melbourne Private Hospital, and a Clinical Sub-Dean for Surgical Education at the University of Melbourne.

Dr. Miller serves as the Executive of the Endocrine Section of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. She is Head of the Thyroid and Endocrine Tumour Group of the Royal Melbourne Hospital, and directs the Thyroid Cancer Multidisciplinary Care Conference. She has a special interest and expertise in minimally invasive parathyroid surgery, as well as thyroid cancer, and adrenal surgery.

In May 2011, Dr. Miller was the first surgeon in Victoria to perform a PRA (posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy). This approach to the adrenal gland is relatively painless, so it benefits the patient in terms of faster recovery. Most patients have no need for prescription pain tablets. The procedure was covered on ABC radio and in the Herald Sun newspaper.

Dr. Miller is a sought after speaker and has given many invited lectures nationally and internationally on her areas of expertise.
