The Department of Surgery at Rotorua Hospital consists of six surgeons. Together, we manage a wide variety of general surgical pathologies including breast, oncoplastics, colorectal, and vascular.

We work closely with other departments, for example plastics, urology and gynaecology.

In combination with our colleagues in gastroenterology we manage a variety of benign and malignant disorders of the gastrointestinal tract by performing diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy and endoscopy.
