Obstetrics


Obstetrics
With expertise in the specialised study of female fertility and childbirth, an obstetrician should be sought before or at the first signs of pregnancy. In questions of fertility, an obstetrician can provide specialised testing and advice on how best to promote and set up a treatment regimen for improving fertility. After a woman becomes pregnant, she will work closely with her obstetrician to track and monitor the health and development of the baby and the mother. 

One of the keystones of Dr George Angus' Obstetric practice is the First Trimester Screening, which is done between 11 and 13 weeks of the pregnancy. This involves a combination of blood tests and ultrasound. By searching for key anatomical markers and development characteristic, Dr Angus aims to detect chromosomal abnormalities such as Down Syndrome.
The testing provides a 'probability' result, or 'risk rating'. It has a high chance of detecting potential abnormalities. If a 'high risk' result is found, then more invasive testing is available to clarify the issue, i.e., Amniocentesis or Chorionic Villus Sampling.

There are other specific screening tests that Dr George Angus encourages pregnant women to consider. These include tests for diabetes and infections. The timed visits throughout your pregnancy enables Dr Angus to closely monitor you and your baby's well-being, and guide you in the optimum pregnancy and birth experience. Dr Angus encourages you to discuss your concerns and provides you with a pregnancy diary to record your questions and experiences.

Dr George Angus has guided almost 10,000 women in their pregnancies and has the experience and skills to assist you on your individual pregnancy journey. With his experience and expertise he has a caesarean section rate of 23% which is 30% lower than the current National Australian average and 1/4 - 1/3 the rate of some institutions and practitioners. Dr George Angus can provide expertise and experience for pregnancy care for all types of pregnancies. He has a wealth of experience in twins, triplets and pregnancies complicated by medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cervical incompetence.

Modern health care is optimised by a partnership of good communication between patient and carer. With his 20 years of experience in obstetrics and gynaecology, this is a philosophy that Dr Angus believes is the cornerstone of an optimal health care outcome and experience. Dr Angus welcomes comments or requests for information to enable you to embark upon a rewarding and satisfying health care experience.
