Dr Kate Walsh
Meet Kate, her Gynaecologist and Laparoscopic Surgeon.
Kate can best be described as outgoing and energetic. She’s an organiser and a fixer, but she always sees to it with compassion and care.
Kate’s specialisations are advanced laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery including Vnotes (vaginal natural orifice transillumination endoscopic surgery); as well as the management of complex endometriosis, treatment of large fibroid uterus, pelvic pain, heavy periods and prolapse.
Her passion for identifying and fixing problems to provide better health, sees Kate thrive in challenging surgeries and training the next generation of surgeons here in Adelaide as well as overseas! It’s also the reason she’s involved in so many committees—she really can’t resist the urge to improve women’s health for all. She’s a passionate advocate for global women’s health and looks forward to a time when she can get back on a plane to Africa, to continue providing education helping to reduce the perinatal mortality rate for women in Namibia, through her volunteer work for Health Volunteers International (HVI).
With over 16 years experience in the medical field, Kate graduated from the University of Adelaide in 2005 and has since completed her Obstetric and Gynaecological Specialised Training with The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG). Kate currently practices at both Lyell Mcewin and Modbury Hospitals and prior to her, was employed by North Adelaide Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Kate contributes a significant amount of time to numerous hospital and state committees. She’s currently the head of unit at O&G Modbury Hospital, chair of the South Australia and Northern Territory Regional RANZCOG Committee and a RANZCOG training supervisor. She’s actively engaged as a member of the Australian Gynaecological Endoscopy and Surgery Society and attends many national and international conferences. Keeping her finger on the pulse Kate prides herself on staying at the forefront of new innovations.
When not at her (or in a Zoom meeting) and having recently moved to a small olive and raspberry farm in the Piccadilly Valley, you’ll likely find Kate in gumboots trying to herd her free-spirited children and beagle into some sense of order, or hiding in the shed tinkering with a power tool! She’s also a big fan of camping and travel.
