Kona Community Hospital has added Dr. Nathan Tomita to its general surgery team, officials said Wednesday. Tomita specializes in bariatric and general surgery, and will be performing procedures not yet available in West Hawaii.
Tomita has performed hundreds of surgical weight loss procedures, most using minimally invasive, laparoscopic techniques. Tomita brings gastric laparoscopic bypass, adjustable gastric band and sleeve gastrectomy procedures to Kona. He also brings incisionless surgery for gastroesophageal reflux disease. Tomita also offers multiple breast biopsy options as well as targeted radiation therapy for breast cancer treatment.
Tomita attended medical school at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed an internship with Genesys Regional Medical Center. Tomita then completed a general surgery residency with Henry Ford Health System in Detroit.
Tomita is employed by Alii Health Center, a subsidiary of Hawaii Health Systems Corp., and is credentialed to perform services at Kona Community Hospital.
