Gowan Creamer

General Surgeon

Gowan is a New Zealand born and trained General Surgeon working in both Private and Public sectors. He is a Thames based Waikato DHB General Surgeon and is also an external clinical advisor for ACC hernia mesh claims. He has a specialist interest in gallstone management, hernia management, rectal bleeding (colonoscopy, banding, haemorrhoids, fissures), GA vasectomy and pilonidal surgery (including flap reconstruction). 

“Doing the right operation for a given patient is critical. In groin hernia it might mean using mesh or not, laparoscopic or open, and even under local anaesthetic alone. I am fortunate that my training and experience allows me to tailor patient care to patient needs.”

Areas of specialisation:

  • Laparoscopic / open hernia repair
  • Laparoscopic / open cholecystectomy
  • Gastric surgery
  • Haemorrhoids
  • Anal fissures
  • Pilonidal sinus
  • Vasectomy
