Dr. Magdalena BiggarThyroid Surgeon
I grew up in Auckland and attended Auckland Medical School. Thereafter I undertook surgical training in General Surgery in New Zealand, becoming a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) in 2009. Subsequently I gained further specialty training and experience in Breast, Endocrine and General Surgery by working abroad in Australia (Princess Alexandra Hospital) and the United Kingdom (Royal Victoria Infirmary) under the tutelage of surgeons prominent on the world stage in their fields.
I now work as a Consultant Breast, Endocrine and General Surgeon for Counties Manukau Health at Middlemore Hosptial and Manukau Superclinic, as well as in private practice. The majority of my work encompasses assessment and treatment of breast disease (in both breast screening and diagnostic environments), thyroid assessment and surgery, as well as elective and emergency general surgery. I will make a commitment to you to use my knowledge and experience to look after you to the best of my ability.
I also have an interest in surgical education and maintaining our New Zealand trained workforce.
Together with my husband Kevin, we have two children.
