Dr Baraty is a consultant gastroenterologist who has been working at Sydney Gastrointestinal Specialists since 2018. He was awarded his medical degree with honours from the University of Sydney in 2009. He obtained his gastroenterology, hepatology and inflammatory bowel disease training in Sydney, with rotations at St. George, Sutherland and Concord Hospitals and was awarded his fellowship to the Royal Australian College of Physicians (FRACP) in 2017.
Dr Baraty has a special interest in inflammatory bowel disease. He completed an advanced IBD and IBD imaging fellowship in Canada. During this time, he developed specialised skills in transabdominal ultrasound assessment of the gastrointestinal tract and is one of only three gastroenterologists in NSW accredited by the International Bowel Ultrasound Group (IBUS) and the Australian Gastroenterology Network of Intestinal Ultrasound (GENIUS) to perform this assessment. He is currently also undertaking a PhD in this field. He believes a healthy gastrointestinal tract is vital for overall health and has a superior understanding of the microbiome and can use his ultrasound skills in combination to help those with IBS and non-IBD gastrointestinal illnesses. He aims for complete patient care, combining evidence-based medicine and his advanced endoscopic and ultrasound skills with his empathetic, friendly, and respectful personality.
Dr Baraty is the head of Gastroenterology at Macquarie University Hospital, and a VMO at Ryde Hospital (and Director of Endoscopy), adjacent to the consulting rooms, where he has a regular endoscopy list and admits patients. He also works at various other public Hospitals where he is teaching others the ultrasound skill and where he contributes to the IBD clinics and undertakes endoscopy lists. In addition, he has appointments at Pennant Hills Day Surgery. He maintains Gastroenterological Society of Australia (GESA) accreditation and has been awarded Conjoint Committee for the Recognition of Training in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy certificates for gastroscopy and colonoscopy with an above-average polyp detection rate. He is also involved in teaching junior gastroenterologists and is very active in IBD research.
