Gynaecology

Eve’s gynaecologists are here for you and committed to the best possible clinical and personal outcome for you.

Because we’re all different, gynaecological conditions require a breadth of knowledge, understanding and specialist management.

Experience is what sets Eve Health apart. Eve Health gynaecologists are dedicated to the ongoing improvement of gynaecological care through advocacy, research and teaching, both here and overseas. Our clinicians have a wealth of knowledge and insight, with many having trained internationally in leading hospitals. Others have dedicated themselves to rural and regional Australia, and the challenges of being the only doctor on the job.

The skill of our specialist team enables Eve Health to offer the best care for women of all ages. Gynaecological conditions can appear at any age, that’s why Eve offers specialists in paediatric, adolescent and adult gynaecology.

Our understanding of your concerns is key to your care. We work with you to ensure the most appropriate course of action to suit your needs. We understand that gynaecological concerns can cause anxiety; just know that the entire Eve Health team is dedicated to your comfort from the moment you arrive.

Some of the more common gynaecological conditions and procedures are described below, and we would be happy to discuss any of your concerns with you at an appointment. Please contact our reception team on (07) 3332 1999 or request an appointment online.
