I’m Dr Lyndon Hale (MBBS, FRACOG, CREI), a fertility specialist and gynaecologist with 30 years’ experience at the forefront of fertility treatment. I feel privileged to work in the field of reproductive health and I am genuinely happiest when I can apply everything I have learned to help people achieve their dreams of raising a family.
My practice is within Melbourne IVF, one of the world’s leading centres for fertility treatment. I’m also the Director of Reproductive Surgery at the Royal Women’s Hospital.
Outside of work, I am passionate about the environment and my farm. I’m a horse rider and will often be riding at competitive reining events.
My experience counts.
Yours counts more.
When we meet, the first thing I’ll do is get to know you. Because your experience leading up to this point in your fertility journey is vital to helping you achieve your future goals.
So whether you are wondering how to improve your fertility or are already well on your IVF journey, I will help you build a treatment plan that is just right for you.
I will do everything I can to help you create the little person you are trying to bring to your family. But you (and your partner if you are in a relationship) are the most important people during treatment. Your wellbeing is vital to your success and I will always do what’s right for you.
