Plastic surgery may include:

  • reconstructive surgery
  • craniofacial surgery
  • hand surgery
  • microsurgery
  • the treatment and management of burns

Nelson Marlborough Health does not employ a plastic surgeon directly within the region. The Lower Hutt District Health Board provides a service to Nelson Marlborough Health. This service includes referral, triage, outpatients and theatre.

Outpatient clinics are held each month at Nelson and Wairau Hospitals for patients travelling to Lower Hutt for surgery.
