Our Doctor

Dr Mark Hehir is a highly experienced and well-qualified general and laparoscopic surgeon and endoscopist.

He has performed over 400 keyhole operations since commencing private practice in the Shoalhaven nearly 27 years ago.

Dr Hehir moved to the area in 1994 to set up a practice which is driven by the desire to provide his patients with a high standard of surgical care in a setting that is caring and personal. He and his wife have raised their three daughters here and love being part of the local community and getting to know the patients and their families.

He is committed to ensuring that the people of the South Coast have the same access to excellence in health as any other community in the state.
