Dr Lekich has been trained by and succeeded the practices of four luminary surgeons. Not only did they nurture Dr Lekich with the great privilege of their training, but they also entrusted their practices and their patients into his care upon their retirement.
These luminary surgeons include:
Dr Lekich has worked in operating theatres for over 20 years initially pursuing a career in eye microsurgery. Inspired by his then-wife who developed a blood clot in her leg during pregnancy, he then completed formal venous and lymphatic disease training.
In his venous practice, Dr. Lekich has conservatively managed Lipoedema for over 10 years. He shifted to the surgical management of the disease once he established the purpose-built, licensed, Miami Day Hospital and training in Germany with Dr Heck.
Dr Lekich has collaborated with the world’s leading Lipoedema Surgeon, Dr Heck of Germany’s LipoClinic. Dr Lekich has made several visits to Germany for personalised training with Dr Heck who has become his mentor and good friend. Dr Heck has also personally spent a number of days visiting Miami Day Hospital in 2017 hosted by Dr. Lekich. This technique of Lipo-Extraction has been perfected over 14 years, now making it available in Australia.
Apart from Dr Lekich’s extensive training in microsurgery, minimally invasive management of venous disease and Lipoedema surgery, he has a formal law degree, has been admitted to the Bar and has completed a Masters of Business Administration.
Dr Lekich is passionate about education and has established a conference and skills training centre. Further his facility is accredited by the Australasian College of Phlebology (ACP) as a training centre. He is a fellow and active board member and past Vice President of the ACP.
He adores his three children and influencing them to be the best adults they can be. Dr Lekich commutes long distances on his bicycle in training for endurance cycling events testing his physical limits, whilst raising money for charity.
