Dr. Michaela Lee
Obstetrician, Gynaecologist, Fertility Specialist, Brisbane
I completed my medical degree in 1996 at Vienna University, Austria. After my studies I initially trained in a renowned fertility clinic where I was involved in both clinical and research work. In 2000 I was appointed to work as a research fellow at the Maternal Fetal Medicine Centre within Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, LA, USA where I participated in regular ultrasound clinics for high risk pregnancy and achieved proficiency in my ultrasound skills. I also performed research projects in 3D-Ultrasound.
I started my training in obstetrics and gynaecology at the University Hospital, Vienna in 2001, and then continued in Australia in 2003. I secured a position as a registrar at the Royal Brisbane Women’s Hospital (RBWH) where I worked for 6 years gaining valuable experience in a wide range of difficult deliveries, pregnancy complications and a variety of women’s health issues. I finished my training at the Redcliffe Hospital where I gained further experience and proficiency in gynaecological surgery.
In 2014 I became affiliated with Monash IVF to provide the option of fertility treatment in my practice and completed my Master of Reproductive Medicine (MRmed) in 2019.
I am committed to providing my patients with the highest standard of comprehensive, professional specialist care with a gentle and friendly approach. I look forward to meeting you and discussing your gynaecological or obstetric needs.
Our Brisbane Clinic
My female staff and I have experienced motherhood, and together we look forward to fostering a supportive partnership with you and your family over the nine months and beyond.
I understand that visiting a Gynaecologist can be a daunting experience! My staff and I aim to provide you with a comfortable, friendly environment to help you feel relaxed and reassured during your professional consultation.
During my work as an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, I’ve realised that infertility has become a more prevalent issue in our society. I’ve felt the need and desire to offer fertility services to provide complete care for my patients.
We are an all-female team
We welcome Monique to our team who brings with her over 14 years of experience in the specialist field, particularly obstetrics and gynaecology. Monique is very dedicated to her work and her main attribute is her empathy and compassion she has when liaising with patients. She is married with one teenage son and she herself has her own personal experience of the emotional and difficult time she endured when she delivered her baby at 26 weeks gestation. I think this has helped strengthen her and her understanding for those who struggle with pregnancies and beyond. In her spare time, she enjoys boating and camping with friends and family.
Jo started her career pathway graduating Occupational Therapy, which has allowed her to bring medical knowledge and a holistic patient care approach to her position here at the practice. She has also worked in varied challenging and dynamic administrative roles, both here in Brisbane and also in London. She is able to combine her medical background with her administrative skills to strengthen her role. She has raised a family of her own, with two teenage daughters and two stepsons in their twenties. She continues to travel the world and explore other cultures with her family.
