Welcome to 525 Remuera Obstetrics & Gynaecology
525 Remeura Obstetrics & Gynaecology was founded by Dr Alec Ekeroma and officially opened by Dr Jacqui Blue MP on the 29th November 2010.
Dr Alec Ekeroma has had specialist private clinics in Manukau and Pukekohe since 1996. And then later decided to consolidate his practice into one clinic, from his home, just outside the Remuera “medical mile”. Hence the 525 Remuera Obstetrics and Gynaecology clinic was born.
The philosophy of the clinic is quite simple – quality care in partnership based on respect and understanding. Quality includes informed choice, autonomy, access, safe and equity. Respect includes listening, discussion and following agreed plans of management.
The practice offers the full range of office obstetrics and gynaecology services in a private and comfortable environment. By working from home, Dr Ekeroma’s practice provides two distinct advantages. Firstly, a service that has flexible opening hours, which should suit working women and mothers; and secondly, with lower overheads, fees are kept the lowest in Auckland.
Dr Ekeroma operates the clinic with the support of reliable and professional staff that understand the core beliefs of the clinic and respect the need for patient confidentiality and high proficiency while ensuring at all times patients are comfortable and all of their needs are met.
Pleased to announce that as of 1 August 2015, 525 Remuera Obstetrics and Gynaecology has been accredited by the DAA Group as having met the standards for office based surgery and procedures NZS8165-2005 in New Zealand.
Meet Dr Alec Ekeroma
Dr Alec Ekeroma is a Fellow of the Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and has been in academic medicine, public hospital and private practice since 1996. Dr Ekeroma did his specialist training in Auckland (National Women’s, Middlemore and St Helens) and Britain (Wrexham, Cornwall and Bristol).
Whilst working in the United Kingodm, he obtained the Fellowship of the British College. He also studied part-time at the University of Keele in Staffordshire towards an MBA in Health Planning and Management.
Obstetrics is the art and science of care for women and their babies in pregnancy and delivery. It is said to be the surgical aspect of midwifery but it is more than that. It is a comprehensive programme of care for women based in the best and applicable evidence to ensure the woman enjoys her pregnancy and delivery without compromising safety for her and her baby.
Dr Ekeroma takes two to three pregnant patients a month to ensure he can provide quality care. The advantage of a solo practice is that he knows all his patients well. He even answers the phone himself where the patient feels her problem is urgent (other LMCs calls are answered by call centres). He arranges cover in Dr Ernest Mavuso, his colleague at Middlemore Hospital, when he is not available.
Gynaecology is the study and care of women encompassing reproductive function, health and anatomy. The clinical continuum is from puberty to the twilight years in the context of well women checks and management of problems or needs in these areas: menstrual problems, contraception needs, fertility concerns, sexual problems, menopausal symptoms and outcomes, pelvic pain, urinary incontinence and infections or tumours in any of the reproductive organs.
525 Remuera Obstetrics and Gynaecology supports the Pacific Society for Reproductive Health Charitable Trust and the Pacific Journal of Reproductive Health.
