Andrew is an experienced fertility specialist with a growing reputation throughout Australasia, due to his understanding and care for patients of different nationalities. He even consults in Singapore monthly and goes often to Bangkok and Shanghai to see patients.
Andrew founded IVF Australia together with 6 other doctors in NSW in 2002. He is highly regarded, providing regular advice to colleagues who are establishing IVF units in Asia.
Andrew’s research interests reflect his personal approach to tailoring treatment to each patient’s clinical and personal needs. For example, he has been examining the effect of different ethnicity on fertility for many years in comparison to Caucasian women and is seeing trends in social and clinical aspects emerge.
Andrew also understands and respects many patients desire to begin treatment with the least invasive methods and is researching optimal treatment progression (including the controversial low dose, lite or mild stimulation IVF) and age related response to IVF for example IVF in women in their twenties and forties – considered age extremes for IVF.
Andrew graduated from the University of Sydney with honours in 1988, before completing his training in obstetrics and gynaecology. He then worked in London for three years in Guys, St Thomas’ and Lister Hospitals, to further his expertise in infertility.
Andrew returned to Sydney to complete his Master of Medicine (Reproductive Health and Genetics) and his sub-specialty certification in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (CREI), and now maintains an appointment as a Conjoint Senior Lecturer at The University of New South Wales.
His special areas of interest include polycystic ovarian syndrome, male infertility, alternative and Chinese medicine and treatment of patients needing donor sperm, oocytes and surrogacy.
Andrew also speaks fluent Mandarin and Cantonese; and has conversational Japanese, Malay and Indonesian.
