An acclaimed fertility expert and endometriosis researcher is joining the specialist team at Genea Oxford Fertility this month.
Associate Professor Louise Hull will be splitting her time between Australia and her hometown Christchurch to take up her new role with Genea Oxford Fertility. “I’m really looking forward to supporting South Island couples to grow their families. Fertility issues can be incredibly complex and require a really strong science-based approach, as well as a caring and supportive environment for people,” she says.
Dr Hull moved to Australia after graduating from medical school at the University of Otago and completing a PhD in endometriosis at Cambridge University in the UK. She gained a Certificate of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (CREI) through the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) and went on to become an Associate Professor at the University of Adelaide. Her extensive knowledge and passion for fertility led her to co-found the Fertility SA IVF Unit in Adelaide.
Genea Oxford Fertility General Manager Catherine France says Dr Hull has achieved at the very highest level throughout her international career. “It is incredibly rare to find a fertility specialist who also has such a great depth of knowledge about endometriosis. We look forward to having her on our team and working with our patients.”
Genea Oxford Fertility, through its partnership with Oxford Women’s Health, offers consultations throughout the South Island including Christchurch, Invercargill and Queenstown. It uses a unique model that blends the best of science, technology and patient care to significantly improve a couple’s ability to have a healthy baby.
A Fertility Options Evening will be held at the Genea Oxford Fertility clinic on 18 October, where you can meet Dr Hull and the Genea Oxford team and learn more about the variety of different fertility treatments available. It is free to attend and registrations can be made at www.geneaoxford.co.nz.
