Steve graduated from Sydney University in 1978 before completing specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology in Newcastle, followed by two years’ advanced training in foetal-maternal medicine in Glasgow, Scotland.
Steve returned to Newcastle in 1987 and started in private practice, as well as taking a lecturing position in reproductive medicine at the University of Newcastle, where he spent four years researching the causes and treatment of recurrent miscarriage.
Having established the first prenatal and ultrasound foetal diagnostic unit in the Newcastle region, he was also the first to perform CVS and cordocentesis. After more than 25 years practising in the management of obstetric and gynaecological conditions, Steve ceased obstetrics in 2001 to focus on:
- diagnostic ultrasound
- prenatal diagnosis, including CVS and amniocentesis
- gynaecological care, including advanced laparoscopic surgery
- infertility, including medical and surgical treatment of male and female infertility, as well as IVF.
