Dr Robert Lahoud

Fertility Specialist; Clinical Director, IVFAustralia
Robert is a fertility specialist with extensive clinical experience in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), and is renowned for his caring approach and bedside manner.

Robert established a PCOS clinic at IVFAustralia for women of all ages, offering diagnosis, assessment and understanding of how to cope with the symptoms of PCOS while trying to start a family, as well as later in life when the condition can cause other health issues. He is also involved in POSSA, the patient support group for women dealing with PCOS.

Another key area of Robert’s expertise is recurrent miscarriage, where he provides thorough follow-up care for patients. Robert wholeheartedly believes that simply providing a little extra TLC for a woman who has had previous miscarriages can have a huge positive effect on the next pregnancy.

He has more than 10 years’ experience as a gynaecologist, as well as qualifications in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (CREI), a field he has worked in for over a decade, both in Australia and Europe. In his role as a clinical director for IVFAustralia, he also deals with general male and female infertility.

Robert is Clinical Director of IVFAustralia’s Greenwich Clinic. He co-ordinates IVFAustralia’s Miscarriage Care Program, and is the Visiting Medical Officer at the Sydney Adventist Hospital. He is involved with teaching both medical students and registrars through the University of Sydney and Notre Dame, and is actively involved in ongoing research pertaining to infertility.
