Dr Bridget Gilsenan is a compassionate Gynaecologist and Obstetrician who works with women to ensure they understand and are comfortable with the treatments she recommends. Her experience is extensive, and her approach down-to-earth, using only everyday language that reflects her respect and empathy for the women in her care.
Dr Gilsenan has a special interest in the management of abnormal pap smears, minimally invasive surgery, adolescent gynaecology and helping patients manage heavy and/or painful periods.
She is passionate about maintaining a high standard of care within organisations and educating the next generation of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists to deliver high-quality, woman-centred care.
To this end, she is the coordinator of registrar education at the Gold Coast University Hospital and teaches medical students from both Bond and Griffith University. She is an instructor for local and national courses, including those that educate obstetricians, junior doctors and midwives in the management of obstetric and antenatal emergencies. She also shares her knowledge of gynaecological surgery as an instructor for the RANZCOG surgical skills course.
Prior to Grace Private, Dr Gilsenan was a staff specialist at the Mater Mothers’ Hospital in Brisbane, one of the leading Australian tertiary hospitals for high-risk obstetrics. She graduated from Griffith University, Gold Coast, where she won numerous academic and humanitarian awards. She completed her specialist training in hospitals across Queensland.
Born and raised on the Gold Coast, Dr Gilsenan is also a keen surfer who enjoys the going to the beach with her two children, partner and two dogs.
