Dr. Hugo Fernandes
Hello, my name is Hugo Fernandes, thank-you for taking the time to get to know a little about me. I am a consultant gynaecologist and advanced laparoscopic surgeon practicing in Melbourne, Victoria. My main rooms are in Richmond near the Epworth and I also consult in Box Hill at Epworth Eastern and at St Vincent’s Private Hospital in Fitzroy.
I completed my specialist training at Monash Health in 2011 where I had a strong focus on gynaecology, oncology and open and laparoscopic surgery, including a 6 month rotation in colorectal and general surgery. I have been fortunate to work with and be trained by some of Australia’s best surgeons.
In 2012 I was appointed the advanced laparoscopic surgical fellow at The Royal Women’s Hospital where the additional 2 years of speciality training further refined and advanced my specialist surgical skills. I am currently a consultant gynaecologist at The Royal Women’s Hospital, Monash Health and Box Hill Hospital.
As a gynaecologist and laparoscopic surgeon, my focus is always on delivering the best possible outcome to my patients. I remain abreast of the latest and most effective treatment options by being actively involved in Australian and international gynaecological societies and through my ongoing research in adenomyosis, endometriosis and infertility at Monash IVF.
I am committed to delivering the highest level of professional care with diligence, integrity, respect and compassion. As such I choose to only practice in gynaecology, laparoscopic surgery and infertility so that I can concentrate on the patient I am consulting with, or operating on, without the concern of having obstetric patients in labour.
When you choose to see me, I will provide you with the most up-to-date and relevant information I can to help you make informed decisions. I will not overstate my abilities nor downplay your concerns and I will always do my best by you.
I live in Melbourne with my partner and our 4 girls (teens to newborn!). I am a tragic supporter of the Melbourne Football Club and enjoy travelling, good food, good coffee and all things WWII and aviation related.
