Melbourne-Based Obstetrician & Gynaecologist Dr Thomas (Tom) Cade

Dr Tom Cade is an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist in full time private practice at Epworth Freemasons and St Vincent’s Private Hospitals in Melbourne. His obstetric area of practice encompasses everything from the most uncomplicated vaginal delivery through to a particular interest in diabetes, specifically the management of those with pre-existing diabetes or who have had gestational diabetes in a previous pregnancy. He received a RANZCOG Scholarship and Melbourne University Fellowship for his work in the management of gestational diabetes and has been awarded a doctorate for his thesis on this topic. He previously led the Diabetes Unit at the Royal Women’s Hospital and contributed to the department of Maternal Fetal Medicine.

Dr Cade undertook advanced training in gynaecological (particularly laparoscopic) surgery at the Royal Women’s and Freemason’s hospital and has been a Pelvic Floor Surgeon at the Royal Women’s Hospital. Dr Cade most commonly operates laparoscopically for pain, infertility or ovarian pathology and has an interest in the surgical management of prolapse or poorly healed obstetric repairs. Referrals to sub-specialists are organised where appropriate.

With different circumstances requiring the need for certain facilities, Dr Cade is able to deliver at several of Melbourne’s most respected hospitals. Dr Cade delivers at St Vincent’s and Epworth Freemasons private hospitals, and in the event of emergency transfer he is also accredited at the Royal Women’s Hospital and Frances Perry House.

Happy 1st Birthday to dear Fleur. Such a beautiful girl and the happiest baby you could ever meet. All smiles, all the time. Well done and congratulations again to parents Jemma and Camilo. ...

Love this photo! And thank you!
I feel so lucky to have been able to look after sisters Kara, Elisabeth & Jennifer, and their bubs Lachie (6 weeks), Gigi (2), Isabelle (4), Lucie (3) and Alex (1)! Best job in the world...

What a difference half a year makes. Theodore at 6 weeks versus 8 months! Congratulations Claire and Tim, and thanks for the photo, he is absolutely adorable. ...

Lockdowns should be a policy of last resort.

They should be an admission of failure of alternative medical policy and are a renunciation of the principle of “primum non nocere” or first do no harm.

This is not political. This is a considered medical opinion that the physical, mental and spiritual/social harms caused by sudden lockdowns far outweigh any benefits, on a thorough analysis of the current biostatistics of the problem in Australia (at least on those data that have been released).

My heart goes out to those with young children at cancelled school, or who own a small business with stock that needs to be thrown out, or anyone at all doing it tough.

(Picture is from the movie Inception-if you haven’t seen it and need a lockdown distraction: I recommend. Hopefully your top keeps spinning and this is all just a transient dream).

Welcome to the world dear Rudi. Such a beautiful baby and by the looks of it, a little tired from the journey! Big congratulations to first time parents Karla and Matthew (both incidentally incredible ballroom dancers - big dance shoes to fill Rudi). ...

Happy New Year to you and yours! I hope you were lucky enough to spend it with those you love most, but if not (due to the restrictions imposed), chin up - we shall progress and in the fullness of time can be reunited again. ...
