New Obstetrician & Gynaecologist now commencing at John Flynn
Jul 24, 2015
Dr Genevieve Bishop is an obstetrician and gynaecologist with a particular interest in incontinence in both the young and older female population.
Dr Bishop studied at Sydney University attaining a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Psychology. She then continued her studies also attaining her Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery from Sydney University. During her training she also attained a Masters in Public Health from the University of NSW.
She trained at obstetrics and general gynaecology at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney and pursued her interest in uro-gynaecology and incontinence with a specialist year at St George Hospital working in the internationally renowned Pelvic Floor Unit.
During her training she also spent over a year at The Tweed Heads Hospital and is familiar with the varied needs and wishes of the community in their approach to care.
Dr Bishop believes in a women centred approach for lifelong care. Her primary outcome in obstetrics is for a safe pregnancy for mother and baby, however she realises there are many ways to achieve this.
She understands that birth is not only about making babies but making mothers strong, competent and capable, and who trust themselves and believe in their inner strength.
Her particular interest in incontinence acknowledges the devastating affect it can have on a woman’s life no matter how big or small an issue it maybe. She strives to treat women with appropriate management both medically and surgically to help them achieve an optimal and fulfilling life.
She will be offering Urodynamics to assist other clinicians in their ongoing patient care as well as to aid in the management of her own patients.
