Professor Hart is very experienced in a wide range of fertility treatments and he is pleased to offer all areas of fertility care to his patients to give them the best chance at realising their dreams of parenthood.
With the support of his excellent team of nurses, embryologists and reception staff, he is able to offer a highly personalised service to all of his patients. He understands each person’s journey is unique and is passionate about empowering his patients with the appropriate information and advice to ensure they are able to make informed choices.
He is a strong advocate of ‘being healthy for pregnancy’, an adage he applies to both men and women. He believes time invested in being healthy will not only make conception easier, it will make the pregnancy more successful and impart better health outcomes for the baby.
Professor Roger Hart graduated from medical school in the UK in 1989. During his obstetrics and gynaecology training he completed a 2½ year fellowship in gynaecological endoscopic surgery (and was awarded his doctorate of medicine MD), a 1½ year fellowship in reproductive medicine, then went on to undertake sub-specialty training in reproductive medicine and surgery. He graduated from his UK training in 2002.
In 2003, he was appointed senior lecturer in gynaecology at the University of Western Australia as he developed his academic career. He then went on to complete his Australian certification in reproductive endocrinology and infertility (CREI) in 2007, the same year he was appointed Professor of Reproductive Medicine at UWA.
He is one of only two specialists to have completed the examination process in both the UK and Australia. He then went on to establish a training program for CREI in WA, and is delighted that there have been two successful graduates from his program, one of whom he currently works with.
Professor Hart is now the Chair of the CREI training programme across Australia and New Zealand, highlighting his dedication to the training of the next generation of fertility specialists.
Professor Hart is a recognised international leader in the field of infertility and has published extensively in scientific literature in these fields. He has over 200 papers in the fields of infertility, IVF, PCOS, IVM and endometriosis. The programs at FSWA for ovulation induction and in vitro maturation of oocytes (IVM) are recognised as world leading.
He has a particular interest in the longer term outcome of IVF on the woman and the child, and the early life origins of male and female reproductive disorders.
He is the recipient of three National Health and Medical Research Council grants, and has recently submitted a further five year grant to study the associations of male and female reproductive disorders, using the Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort (Raine) Study where he is a lead researcher in the field of reproductive medicine.
