Dr Gary McKay – Colorectal Surgeon


Dr Gary McKay is a Colorectal & General Surgeon from Sydney's Lower North Shore who specialises in colorectal cancer surgery.  He is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS), a full member of the Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New-Zealand (CSSANZ), and is accredited with the Gastrointestinal Enterological Society of Australia (GESA) for training in gastroscopy and colonoscopy.

Dr McKay is committed to providing you with the latest safe, minimally-invasive surgical techniques, including endoscopic surgery, and transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEMs & TAMIS).

Dr McKay also performs robotic surgery using the da Vinci robot for low rectal cancers and rectopexy with this new technology allowing for better 3D vision, and more precise surgical technique.
