Upon returning to Full-time Specialist practice at Middlemore he co-founded the Craniofacial Clinic with Chris Furneaux, Neurosurgeon, and continued working with children with cleft lip & palate deformities.

In 2008 Martin entered full time private practice at the Auckland Plastic Surgical Centre and the adjacent Remuera Surgical Care in Remuera. He has now 'semi-retired' to working only in what was his subsidiary practice at Marina Specialists, Half Moon Bay Marina, East Auckland.
