Dr Padmaja Koya - Specialist Gynaecologist & Laparoscopic Surgeon
Private Service, Obstetrics and Gynaecology
I practice all aspects of gynaecology and my special interests include endometriosis, fibroids and ovarian cysts requiring complex laparoscopy. I am one of a very few gynaecologists who offer total laparoscopic hysterectomy in New Zealand. I also offer surgical management of female incontinence and prolapse.
I carry out surgical procedures at Ascot Integrated Hospital, Brightside Hospital and Gynaecology 161.
