Dr Turner graduated from the University of Sydney in 1996. After completing her Surgical training  she was awarded the Notaras Colorectal Fellowship for Colorectal training in 2006 – 2008 working at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney and St Marks Hospital, London. She obtained a Masters of Surgery at the University of Sydney in 2007.

She has undertaken a number of research activities that have had subsequent publications in the area of pelvic floor disorders.

Dr Turner is experienced in laparoscopic surgery for both benign and malignant diseases, with a subspecialty interest in pelvic floor disorders and complex anorectal fistulae. She is implementing the use of Sacral Nerve Stimulation for treatment of anal incontinence, and TEMS for excision of benign and early rectal tumours.

She is currently extending the minimally invasive approach by using the Da Vinci robot which adds 3D vision and more precision in more complex surgical procedures.

Since her appointment as a VMO Colorectal Surgeon at Bankstown Hospital in 2009 she has been instrumental in establishing the SKC Wong Centre for Anorectal Diagnostics and Treatment, Bankstown Hospital, of which she is now the Director.
