With a passion for tailoring an individual pregnancy plan to suit the unique needs of each of his patients, Dr Butler is also a perfect fit for you if you are expecting twins or a multiple birth, hoping to have a natural birth after a previous caesarean, or if you have experienced previous pregnancy loss, preterm delivery, or have an underlying medical problem and are planning a pregnancy.

As a gynaecologist, Dr Butler also has additional specialist training in endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery. He specialises in minimally invasive techniques to facilitate the treatment of many gynaecological conditions including endometriosis, fibroids, pelvic pain, and menstrual disorders.
