Thyroid Surgery

Mr. Jacques Marnewick Is Your Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgeon in Tauranga.

Thyroid and parathyroid surgery are highly specialised areas of general surgery and demand sound clinical judgement, technical expertise and the ability to make complex treatment decisions intra-operatively. Acquiring these skills takes years of surgical training plus additional, post-fellowship subspecialty training, often undertaken in busy international surgery units. 

International evidence has also shown that the best outcomes are in the hands of well-trained and higher volume surgeons. Conversely, low volume surgeons are known to have higher complications in this area of surgery. The fact that a surgeon performs thyroid operations does not imply any level of expertise or experience.  

I am the only general surgeon in the Bay of Plenty with such specialised training, having spent two years gaining more experience and expertise in parathyroid and thyroid surgery in Auckland and Melbourne.

If expertise and good outcomes are important to you, as they are to me, contact my office and schedule an appointment. I’m Jacques Marnewick, MBChB FRACS, and I’m ready to help you.
