Top NZ Doctor Becomes an Aussie

First-class NZ surgeon in conjoined twins separation climbs the evolution ladder

New Zealand-born plastic surgeon Dr Andrew Greensmith, who helped separate conjoined Bangladeshi twins last year, became an Aussie.

Dr Greensmith is yet another living proof that when intelligent New Zealanders get the chance, they vote with their feet and opt for Australian citizenship.

“Dr Greensmith, his wife, Mexican-born Victoria and children Andres and Claudia, all pledged their allegiance to Australia at the Australia Day citizenship ceremony in Canberra presided over by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Governor-General Quentin Bryce.” AAP reported.

When asked why he made the move, Dr Greensmith said:

“We have been here for six years now and the children are very much growing up as Australians. We feel very much settled here,” he said.

“We had a period over many years prior to that with my training in France and England where we were exposed to many other cultures and societies. We were very unsettled because we were moving so much.

“And now we have found a place which is right for everyone. It is right for my wife who is from Mexico originally.

“We are very much a multinational family. Australia is a place that very much embraces and celebrates all those cultures.”
