Dr Jon Morrow manages a number of general surgical conditions. Operations can be performed either by a minimally invasive approach (keyhole surgery) or as an open procedure. The best method will be tailored to you.

Successful weight loss requires a combination of both lifestyle changes (including diet and exercise) and surgery. A range of different weight loss surgical procedures (band, sleeve, bypass) are available. Any and all options can be discussed.

Gallstones are very common and can cause a variety of conditions ranging from minor to severe. Surgical removal of the gallbladder via keyhole surgery is the recommended treatment.

Hernias come in all shapes and sizes and should, if possible, be fixed. They can be repaired via a traditional open approach or by using minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery.

Common Questions

How do I make an appointment to be seen?

Generally it is best to have a referral from your GP because they know your history. Your GP can fax this through to the rooms and we will contact you. Alternatively you can ring the rooms directly and bring the referral with you.

Do I need a GP referral?

It is best to have a referral from a doctor, but patients can be seen without a referral as well. Some insurance companies require referral letter for you to get reimbursed. Please ring the clinic phone number to discuss further.

How much does it cost?

The cost of your consultation or surgery varies depending on your condition. Initial consultation charges vary from $200 to $400 depending on the complexity of your problem. They are generally 20 to 40 minutes long. The amount covered by your health insurance depends on the policy you hold. Common health insurance policies will cover 80% or more of the costs. You should contact your health insurance company to obtain information on what and how much cover is provided by your policy.

How long do I have to wait for an appointment?

Patients are seen within one to two weeks. For urgent problems patients can be seen earlier, please phone the clinic.

Public or private treatment?

In New Zealand you can access both private and public systems through a referral from your GP. Urgent, life and limb threatening problems will be promptly addressed in both sectors. For non-urgent conditions and elective operations such as hernia repair there may be a waiting time in the public sector. These cases will be seen quicker in the private system.
