Professor Martin Oehler

Gynaecologist & Gynaecological Oncologist

Professor Martin K. Oehler is a Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) certified Gynaecologist and Gynaecological Oncologists (CGO). He did his subspecialty training at Westmead Hospital in Sydney and Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne and came to Adelaide in 2006. He is Director of Gynaecological Oncology at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and Clinical Professor in the Discipline of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Adelaide University. 

Prof Oehler provides comprehensive surgical and medical care for patients with cancer and pre-cancerous lesions of the ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus, vagina and vulva. His service includes inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures, minimally-invasive and robotic surgery, laser treatment and systemic chemotherapies. As Principle Investigator of several international clinical trials he provides access to the latest treatments for ovarian cancer at Burnside Hospital.  Prof Oehler offers his patients coordinated care in a multidisciplinary environment working closely together with other medical specialists including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, general surgeons, clinical geneticists, palliative care specialists and breast surgeons.

In addition, Prof Oehler accepts referrals for benign gynaecological conditions requiring open or laparoscopic pelvic surgery, such as severe endometriosis, fibroids and complex pelvic masses, as well as the investigation and management of abnormal PAP smears. He also sees women who require prophylactic gynaecological surgery for genetic risk (e.g. BRCA mutations) or previous history of breast cancer.  

Prof Oehler is the only Gynaecologist/Gynaecological Oncologist in South Australia to offer robotic surgery using the DaVinci surgical system. The use of robotic technology allows more complicated operations to be achieved via a minimally invasive approach. As robotic instruments allow surgical access through tiny 1 cm incisions, patients experience significantly less pain, have a much shorter hospital stay and much quicker recovery. They are therefore able to return to normal activities much faster than after conventional surgery.
