Dr David Waterhouse


I am an Otolaryngologist, Head and Neck Surgeon from Whangarei New Zealand. I gained my fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS)  in 2013 and then spent 2 further years in Auckland and Yorkshire where I developed extra skills in complex ear, neck and nasal surgery through a Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh Surgical Fellowship. 

I am the current Clinical Director of Otolarygnology at Northland District Health Board where I co-ordinate public ENT care for Northland. I am a member of our national training and educational committee which supervises our future ENT surgeons. I have a broad set of skills in all areas of ENT care with subspecialty skills in complex ear surgery and facial plastic surgery.

My Partner Vanessa and I run the Tuhauora Clinic which provides private surgical services to our Northland population.
