Head and Neck

Our Approach

Mr Derek Goodisson is the principal surgeon in Hawke’s Bay for head and neck cancer.  At Scott Clinic he offers a comprehensive approach to the assessment and diagnosis of head and neck  cancers and other head and neck disorders including neck lumps, lymph node enlargement, blocked salivary glands and skin cancers of the head and neck.

The clinic has a strong emphasis on implementing best practice, and has strong links with local and national multi-disciplinary teams (MDT), particularly for the management of head and neck cancers.
