Ask RiotACT: Recommendations for a gynaecologist

By MsG - 27 September 2016 4

Ask RiotACT

I’m looking for recommendations for the best gynaecologist in Canberra as I have several medical issues that will in all likelihood lead to me having a hysterectomy in the near future. Given that a hysterectomy is a significant operation, I want to be confident that the operation doesn’t lead to another set of medical issues (however I accept that there can be no guarantees). I don’t mind if the specialist is male or female, I just want the best in their field. I also have top private health cover, so where they operate is not an issue.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

What’s Your opinion?

I’ve been under the care of Dr Jakub Dreher (operates at Calvary Private- Bruce) for a few years and highly recommend him. He is polite, knowledgeable and honest but not pushy. For my own condition, I had surgery 2 years ago (which was complicated but Dr Dreher did an excellent job). He also made sure I understood my options re: a second lot of surgery, and has respected my decision not to pursue this for the foreseeable future.

My only complaint is with Calvary Private- I spent a few days recovering post-surgery on the maternity/Women’s ward and the hungry newborns and their snoring Dad’s were a little noisy 😛

Steve Robson – John James Medical Centre. Nice man, former head of OB and Gyn at TCH. Knows his stuff.

This is a good one to ask your GP – explain all the above to them, and ask who they would go and see if they needed to see one. What one person classes as a good specialist (good bedside manner, short waiting times) can be very different to someone else (low rate of complications, hospital admitting rights).

Omar Adham at Women’s Health on Strickland in Deakin; he did my hyster (laparoscopic) and did a fantastic job. Minimal pain, fast recovery. Operates out of John James.
