Choosing a Specialist

Your doctor will be able to recommend and refer you to a gynaecologist who can perform your surgery.

You may be happy to accept the advice of your doctor or you may like to investigate your choices.

You can locate a gynaecologist through the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

Questions for your doctor may help you understand your treatment, and, if necessary, decide on a gynaecologist. Practical issues you may also like to consider are which hospital(s) a particular gynaecologist operates from, and their fees.
