With Dr Stephen Elgey you are assured of supportive care and advice from pre-conception to cradle, by a doctor who’s walked in your shoes. 

Dr Elgey works primarily in:

  • Obstetrics.
  • Gynaecology.
  • Laparoscopy.
  • IVF and fertility care.

Dr Elgey started his career as a scientist working in the detection of genetic problems that cause pregnancy losses and fetal abnormalities. Wanting to care for women beyond the microscope, he took off his lab coat and returned to study medicine at the University of Queensland.

He now provides care and advice to women and their partners who are looking to become pregnant, having trouble falling pregnant, or simply want a doctor they can trust to care for them all the way through to the birth of their baby. Dr Elgey’s practice at Sunnybank encompasses a wide range of obstetric and gynaecological conditions, including high-risk pregnancy, endometriosis management, pelvic floor issues and laparoscopic surgery.

Having been on an IVF journey with his wife Lara, he has had an insight into the sometimes difficult journey of fertility treatments and beyond. Dr Elgey is now a proud father of three and understands that there is no greater joy than the safe arrival of a baby.

With his relaxed yet careful approach, he will guide you through the process with personalised attention and support. He is passionate about keeping abreast of the latest in options to help ensure you get the right treatment.

Dr Elgey is proud to offer care to all women wanting to become pregnant, either with their partner or with the help of a donor, and would welcome the opportunity to discuss your situation and options with you.

Dr Elgey strives to accommodate new patients within 10 working days.

  • He was the director of obstetrics and gynaecology at Redland Hospital.
  • He was awarded the Clinical School Teaching Award from the University of Queensland School of Medicine in 2012.

  • I grew up in… the northern Brisbane suburbs, riding my bike everywhere.
  • I start my day… hoping that my two youngest children are still asleep so I can get 30 minutes of ‘me’ time.
  • When I am not working… I’d love to be able to switch off my phone!
  • Most people don’t know that… the Great Wall of China can’t be seen from space. Really, it can’t.
  • When I was growing up, I wanted to be… able to see the Great Wall of China from space. Not happy when I found out that was never going to happen, so I decided to study medicine instead. Sorry, NASA.
  • My favourite holiday spot is… Yamba, NSW. Beautiful beaches for every occasion and not a traffic light in sight.
  • My greatest achievement is… I know this is clichéd, but having three great kids in a happy, stable family, despite all the pressures of life and work, is a pretty good achievement.
