General, Laparoscopic and Thyroid surgeon.
I am a New Zealand-trained General Surgeon, fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and a Consultant surgeon in the department of general surgery at Tauranga Hospital.
Most of the operations that I perform require an overnight admission. Some are performed as day-stay cases.
During the consultation, I take a detailed history, perform a thorough examination and then review or request appropriate investigations.
