Mr David Moss - General Surgeon

Private Service, General Surgery, Breast


9:00 AM to 5:30 PM.


I am a specialist breast and general surgeon.

Breast surgery forms a large part of my practice. I see breast problems at Eastcare Specialist Centre, 260 Botany Road. Here we can offer a comprehensive one stop service with imaging and clinical assessment.

Surgery if required is performed at Ormiston Hospital.


I work closely with a Nurse who is involved in pre and post operative care.

A post operative home visit is also available.  Please enquire if you are interested in this service.

I also have an interest in laparoscopic procedures including hernia repair.

I see a variety of general surgical conditions and have a special interest in thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal problems.  I see patients at either Eastcare Specialist Suite or Ormiston Hospital.

While the name would suggest that the focus of general surgery is to perform operations, often this is not the case. Many patients are referred to surgeons with conditions that do not need surgical procedures, but merely require counselling or medical treatment.


Referral Expectations

When you come to your appointment, your surgeon will ask questions about your illness and examine you to try to determine or confirm the diagnosis. This process may also require a number of tests (e.g. blood tests, x-rays, scans etc). Sometimes this can all be done during one visit, but for some conditions this will take several follow-up appointments. Occasionally some tests are arranged even before your appointment to try to speed up the process.
Once a diagnosis has been made, your surgeon will discuss treatment with you. In some instances this will mean surgery, while other cases can be managed with medication and advice. If surgery is advised, the steps involved in the surgical process and the likely outcome are usually discussed with you at this time.
