Gilles studied his specialty in General Practice at the University of Reims, known for holying French kings and being the world producer of Champagne. He graduated with honours in his doctorate of medicine at the University of Reims after completing a PhD on the medical demography and the impact of the medical landscape following new economic health regulation. He also validated with honours his specialisation in General Practice by finalising an essay about burn-out.
Thereafter, he moved to Australia where he had undergone a thorough training in skin cancer medicine and surgical management, which he has been practising for the last 10 years.
Seeing the impact that swollen legs and varicose veins could create in the quality of life of patients, Gilles began a new training to become a specialist in Phlebology under the guidance of Dr Anne Padburry, Dr Lisa Marks, Dr Paul Hannah and Dr Chris Lekich. Dr Chris Lekich also mentored and provided Gilles with specialised training in Lipoedema, its management and surgery.
