Southern Cross Auckland Surgical Centre - General Surgery

Private Surgical Service, General Surgery

This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.


Auckland Surgical Centre has an established pedigree in day stay surgical services and a reputation for innovation in relation to anaesthetics and pain management related to those services. The hospital's strong reputation in the Auckland region has been built around these strengths, and also its leading orthopaedic and plastic surgery services.

In terms of facilities, significant expansion at Auckland Surgical Centre, in 1996, allowed the hospital to accommodate 4 operating theatres, stage one recovery facilities, day-stay recovery areas, and a 20-bed overnight stay facility. More recent upgrades to patient and consulting areas and facilities, including the patient reception area, have been completed.
