What happened to Dr Michael Brighton-Knight?

I was born Michael Knight. In 1995 I married, and changed my name to Michael Brighton-Knight

In 2011 my marriage ended and I reverted to Michael R Knight.

My children still have the surname Brighton-Knight

When I first went into specialist practice I used the prefix. “Dr”.

This is the standard for most surgeons in the world, and indeed in most of Australia.

However in Victoria “Mr” is still the commonest way to address a surgeon, and patients have always wondered if
I was a real surgeon, as I didn’t use “Mr”.

So in July 2013 I conceded to the masses, and will use the title/name:

Mr Michael R Knight
