These skill sets have allowed for great success working in general practice as well as in his area of special interest which focuses on athletes. He considers himself very fortunate to have been associated with several great sports clubs and numerous individual athletes, allowing him to manage the cases of athletes ranging from national champions (Tae Kwon Do; Bodybuilding) and Olympians (Basketball), to up-and-coming development squad participants (Swimming; Cricket; Australian Rules Football) as well as the die-hard weekend warriors.
In his spare time, Dr Gannon enjoys a variety of outdoor activities and assists sporting organizations with injury prevention and management.
