Greenwood Health has the pleasure of welcoming Dr Jannes Sipkens, who recently joined the team as a locum GP, living and working in the Motueka region until October.
Among one of his many clinical skills Dr Sipkens is trained in the male surgical sterilisation technique – the vasectomy.
Currently there is no public option for vasectomy in the Nelson/Tasman region and only a limited number of private services in Nelson.
This will be the first time residents of the local region will have close and ready access to this procedure.
The whole procedure will take about an hour in our purpose built surgical room, is done under local anaesthetic and costs just $600.
While he is with us Dr Sipkens will be performing this procedure, and he will also be teaching our very own Dr Oliver Madigan in the technique so this service will be available to the Tasman community long term.
If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity then please contact the Greenwood Health team on 03 528 8866 to make an appointment.
