It was on a trip, through some of the most impoverished parts of Africa, that Brad decided to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a doctor.
Brad subsequently graduated from medical school and, after completing his residency, commenced specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology. Placements at the Townsville Hospital, the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, and Caboolture Hospital, saw him gain invaluable experience caring for women through their pregnancies, labours, and deliveries. During this time he also won the prestigious Crown Street Medal for his research into threatened pre-term labour.
Brad then undertook two years of specialised gynaecology training in Adelaide, focusing on urogynaecology and advanced laparoscopic surgery. He also completed a Masters of Reproductive Medicine.
Brad has managed the safe delivery of more than 500 babies and is well known for his calm and gentle demeanour, and patient-focused care. As well as his enduring love for obstetrics, Brad has special interests in the management of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, the menopause, and fertility.
Dr. Brad Robinson is the resident Obstetrician and women’s health expert for Brisbane radio station 97.3 FM’s morning crew, and he often features on their program talking about topical issues. Brad has also written about pregnancy and gynaecological issues for popular women’s website, Mamamia, and appeared on Channel Seven television speaking about fertility.
He lives in Brisbane with his wife Rebecca, their three young children, and their much-loved dog, Chewie.
When he’s not working Brad spends his time trying to stay fit, watching sport, and struggling to beat his five -year-old daughter at Snakes and Ladders.
