Specialist Endocrine Surgeon
Laparoscopic and General Surgeon
Meet Dr Steven Craig
Dr Craig is a respected specialist surgeon, committed to providing the highest standards of surgical care in regional Australia. He develops strong patient relationships and is approachable, empathetic and easily accessible.
Dr Craig completed his specialist training in General Surgery before moving to Canada to undertake further sub-specialist training in Endocrine Surgery and Surgical Oncology.
He provides a wide range of sub-specialty and general surgery procedures, as well as on-call emergency services to hospitals throughout the Illawarra-Shoalhaven region.
Dr Craig understands the significant stress and difficulties faced by those in our region who are newly diagnosed with cancer, and endeavours to see all new cancer referrals as promptly as possible.
Dr Craig's sub-specialty areas of expertise are:
Endocrine Surgery (all aspects including thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal)
Surgical Oncology (head and neck, melanoma, breast, skin and soft tissue).
He also offers a comprehensive general surgery service to the south coast region, including:
minimally invasive surgery (cholecystectomy, hernia repair, colectomy)
on-call emergency and trauma surgery.
Please note that Dr Craig is also available to assist with the initial investigation and work-up of patients with a suspected malignancy or endocrinopathy, and to perform point-of-care ultrasound and biopsy if required.
For all appointments and enquiries, please phone (02) 4249 4123.
For your first consultation, please be sure to bring:
your Medicare card (and pension card or DVA Gold card, if you have one)
the results of any tests, including scans (x-rays, CT scans, ultrasounds and MRI), blood tests and biopsy results (you may need to check with your doctor to ensure you have all necessary results)
a letter of referral from your local doctor (advise our receptionist before your appointment if your doctor has sent this to the clinic directly).
Please note that we strive to be as punctual as possible with appointment times, but that occasionally, patients require more attention than anticipated. Dr Craig also provides on-call emergency surgical services to the district, and may be called away from the consulting rooms at short notice.
We sincerely apologise for any delays, and appreciate your understanding.
