Rhonda is a certified gynaecological oncologist with over 10 years experience as a senior staff specialist caring for women with gynaecological cancer. She is a strong advocate for the patient-focused multidisciplinary model of cancer care. She practices open and minimally invasive (laparoscopic and robotic) surgery for cancers of the ovary, uterus, vagina and vulva. Her interests include surgery for ovarian cancer, metabolic and genetic influences of obesity-related endometrial cancer, prevention of gynaecological cancers, and patient preferences for cancer management.
Rhonda is actively involved in teaching and research activities locally and nationally. She is the immediate past-chairperson of the CGO committee of RANZCOG, and a member of several national committees involved in the planning and implementation of gynaecological oncology services in Australia. She is currently completing a PhD in peritonectomy and HIPEC for ovarian cancer.
