In New Zealand, we have one of the highest rates of Melanoma in the world. It is very common. I see melanoma patients weekly in my busy public hospital clinic and operate on almost all of these patients I see. I will discuss with you the  specific surgery for your type of melanoma, as not all are the same, and also importantly the investigations before surgery and follow up after surgery. I also operate on other skin cancers, mostly squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. I offer:

  • Melanoma surgery and lymph node surgery
  • Skin flaps and skin grafts
  • Inguinal, axilla and neck dissection for melanoma
