Dr Tania Hingston and Dr Kirsten Connan are specialist Obstetrician/Gynaecologists and co-founders of TasOGS. Tania and Kirsten worked together from 2006 to 2008 and were delighted to start TasOGS together in Hobart in 2015. Tania and Kirsten were excited to welcome Dr Emily Price as TasOGS’ third specialist Obstetrician/Gynaecologist in 2017.
Tania’s interests include normal & high risk obstetrics, ultrasound, open and vaginal surgery (especially vaginal hysterectomy, prolapse repair and incontinence surgery). Having trained in both Melbourne and Tasmania, Tania’s move to Hobart is a return to where she began her medical career at the University of Tasmania.
During her training Tania held the Maternofetal Medicine Fellow position at the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne. The same year she received the RANZCOG gold medal for the highest score at the oral examinations in 2008. Tania received her specialist qualification (FRANZCOG) in late 2009 and most recently has worked as a staff specialist in Burnie in North West Tasmania.
Kirsten’s interests include normal & high risk obstetrics, ultrasound, open and laparoscopic surgery (particularly for pelvic pain, endometriosis, laparoscopic cystectomies and hysterectomies). Kirsten trained predominantly at the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, holding the principal registrar position in 2009. The move to Hobart for Kirsten and her family has been a number of years in the planning.
During her training at the Royal Women’s, Kirsten held the Maternofetal Medicine Fellow post in 2008, completed 18 months of senior training in advanced laparoscopic surgery (2009-2010) and achieved an additional qualification in Ultrasound (DDU in O&G). Kirsten received her specialist qualification in 2010 and most recently has worked as a staff specialist at Royal Darwin Hospital.
Emily’s interests include normal and high-risk obstetrics, general gynaecology, laparoscopic surgery, reproductive medicine, IVF and infertility. She recently relocated to Hobart with her husband and two young daughters.
