Dr Geraldine 'Geri' Ooi
I am a specialist surgeon in Upper Gastrointestinal (UGI) and Bariatric surgery. I also perform a wide range of general surgery procedures. In particular, laparoscopic hernia repair, cholecystectomy, benign and malignant UGI surgery, including hiatus hernia repair and minimally invasive oesophagectomy and gastrectomy.
I specialise in the treatment of oesophageal and gastric cancer, hiatal hernias and reflux disease, morbid obesity, achalasia and oesophageal dysmotility, using mainly minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic approaches.
I completed a PhD in 2019, focusing on bariatric surgery, fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome. I subsequently underwent two years of sub-specialty upper gastrointestinal surgery training through the highly competitive AANZGOSA program in Perth and Melbourne, working in high volume bariatric and oesophagogastric cancer units. Subsequently, I underwent further training in Surgical Oncology in the world-renowned Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, with a focus on robotic surgery and oesophagogastric cancer.
I am a consultant surgeon at Monash Medical Centre, and Senior Lecturer and Clinical Researcher in the School for Clinical Sciences at Monash University. I also work privately in Jessie McPherson Private Hospital and Mulgrave Private Hospital.
