Mr Kevin Bax
Originally from South Africa, Kevin completed his undergraduate medical degree at the University of Cape Town. In 1999 he was drawn to the West Coast, New Zealand by the rural community and the wonderful fly fishing of the South Island.
He began his surgical training in Greymouth then spent four years at Christchurch Hospital before moving to Adelaide, South Australia where he completed his advanced urology training. While in Adelaide he worked at hospitals affiliated with both Flinders University and the University of South Australia.
After completing his advanced urology training and gaining his Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in Urology, he moved to Bristol in the United Kingdom where he did an extended urology fellowship programme with David Gillet through the Bristol Urological Institute. This fellowship was in uro-oncology and robotics.
Kevin is a general urologist but with a subspecialist interest in urological malignancies, particularly with minimally invasive therapeutic options. He has a particular interest in robotic surgery.
