/ Dr Immanuel Hennessy


Jerusalem by birth, Irish by the grace of God. Fhreastail mé ar gaelscoil Cholaiste Mhuire ,Cearnóg Parnell. After completing a degree in Biochemistry with immunology at TCD (2004) I decided on a career in medicine and graduated from RCSI in 2009. I completed specialist training in anaesthesia in 2016 while renovating an old Georgian house with my Dad. After a paediatric fellowship in Temple Street I walked across the road into the Mater private and continued to ply my trade as a consultant anaesthestist.

Last June I took up a role as the senior fellow in CVICU in Auckland city hospital. At present my portfolio is all things ECMO and non-pulsatile. I have an active interest in climbing and high altitude medicine. I have been an expedition doctor on trips to Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro and on Elbrus. Mt Cook awaits in December.
