Specialities include general surgery, gastro intestinal endoscopy, orthopaedics and minor gynaecology.
Cobram District Health is a small rural health service, therefore we are limited as to what and whom we perform surgery on. Patients who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 35 may not be able to have a general anaesthetic. Any person who has concurrent medical problems which may require extra services may not be appropriate to have surgery at Cobram District Health as our facilities are limited.
Most procedures performed are day surgery.
