Infertility
Comprehensive management of couples with infertility.  This involves investigating and counseling regarding chances of a natural pregnancy, management of lifestyle issues, treating any underlying medical or surgical problems and assisted reproduction.  
 
Assisted Reproduction
When people think of assisted reproduction most think that IVF is the only option. Whilst IVF a fantastic treatment for many, there may be several other options available.  I pride myself on spending the time to work out what is the best technique for my patients' individual situation, taking into account their needs and wishes.  With the team at Genea (formerly Sydney IVF) I am able to offer some of the most advanced reproductive techniques including ovulation induction, insemination, IVF, ICSI, and preimplanation genetic diagnosis.  
 
Reproductive endocrinology
Helping women with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and irregular or absent menstrual periods, whether or not they are trying to conceive.  Management of women, trying to conceive, who have known endocrine conditions such as thyroid disease.  
 
Fertility counseling
Providing advice for women and men whose fertility is threatened by cancer treatments, and options to minimize this risk .  Counseling regarding fertility options for single women or same-sex couples.  Use of donor eggs or sperm either through a known donor or de-identified "bank".  
 
Miscarriage management
Helping couples who experience recurrent miscarriage with investigation for underlying causes, and options for improving chances of a successful pregnancy next time.  
 
Reproductive surgery
Laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for endometriosis, ovarian cysts, pelvic adhesions, etc.  Hysteroscopic (scalpel-free) surgery for uterine abnormalities such as polyps, fibroids, septums and adhesions.  Testicular biopsies if required for diagnostic purposes, or collection of sperm for use with IVF in men that require this.  
 
Costs 
My philosophy of individualized care means I allow for long consultations and pride myself on spending enough time for my patients to be fully informed about their situation, with ample opportunity to have their questions thoroughly addressed.  Given this additional time I spend, I charge privately above the Medicare rebate.  Please contact my rooms for further information regarding consultation costs.  Costs for treatment at Genea can be found at www.genea.com.au.  
 
What I don't do
To ensure I am able to maintain the skills and up to date knowledge in my areas of expertise, I do not offer
  • Obstetric care after 12 weeks of pregnancy
  • Management of abnormal pap smears or gynaecological cancers
  • Management of pelvic floor problems
