Mr Karl Kodeda

Specialist

Profile

For the first few years in surgery, I worked in a small hospital on an island in the Baltic Sea. For over a decade, I worked at a tertiary referral and academic centre. Before moving to New Zealand I was a high profile colorectal and oncological surgeon, with national responsibility for certain areas in advanced cancer surgery and active researcher.

I believe I can contribute in Taranaki to the whole colorectal spectrum (cancer, IBD, proctology and functional disorders). However, I’ve always been a general surgeon at heart and have taken pride in performing the common surgical procedures, both in public and private
