After 27 years as a doctor, Frank has a broad range of experience having worked in both the hospital system and also as a general practitioner prior to specialising.
Ben is a dynamic Obstetrician and Gynaecologist with a keen interest in high risk obstetrics and minimally invasive surgery. He has been a doctor for 22 years.
For those expecting a new baby, for those simply in need of a regular check-up or seeking one out of concern, a trained obstetrician and gynaecologist is a safe and sensible choice. Tasgynae is providing people across Launceston with a reliable, comfortable avenue for seeking the help they need with their gynaecological and reproductive health.
As part of our mission of caring for the community we provide pre- and post-natal care, both privately and in cooperation with the Queen Victoria Outpatients Maternity Clinic at the Launceston General Hospital. We also offer support over the course of labour and birth for patients choosing to have their birth at the hospital. We can help you negotiate even the most difficult risks of pregnancy and regard our duty as keeping you informed of any health issues facing you or your child, so you can make the right decisions for yourself.
We understand that in this sensitive area of healthcare patients’ expectations of their care providers are perhaps even higher than usual. We have male and female gynaecologists to best respond to your needs and preferences, and our patients value the closer connection which our small, veteran team are able to engender with patients.
We offer an obstetrics and gynaecology service that includes the care of women with high risk pregnancies, advanced key hole (laparoscopy) procedures, hysteroscopic surgery and pelvic floor reconstructive surgery for patients from Latrobe, Devonport and Ulverstone. We work differently with every patient, building a treatment plan based on your personal medical history and lifestyle.
