Conditions we treat Consultations and procedures

The gynaecological oncologists at GYON are highly respected by the wider medical community for providing the very best patient care for gynaecological cancers, benign gynaecological conditions and genital tract dysplasia. As trained surgical gynaecologists, they are a tertiary referral service providing valued advice and assistance to other specialist gynaecologists

Known for their surgical excellence and a personalised approach to care, our doctors have all completed extended specialist training and are highly skilled in open, laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques. They aim to use minimally invasive treatments whenever possible.

Our team collaborates extensively with international gynaecological oncology centres and local agencies including the Queensland Centre for Gynaeoncological Cancer (QCGC), Translational Research Institute (TRI), QMIR Berghofer Medical Research Institute and Queensland University of Technology.
