Dr Gary Swift is one of Queensland’s most eminent gynaecologist obstetricians with over 30 years in the field, empathetic patient rapport and exceptional outcomes. 

His passion fields are Fertility, Reproductive Medicine, Endometriosis and Gynaecological Laparoscopic Surgery. Focussing on these specialities has allowed him to hone his expertise to offer patients premium medical management.  

Since commencing private practice in 1999, he has actively stayed at the forefront of developments, techniques and technology, and is active in educating and training future specialists in these disciplines. 

Dr Gary Swift has been practicing obstetrics and gynaecology, as well as reproductive medicine and surgery, since 1993, qualifying as a specialist in 1999. He completed his highly specialised training in Advanced Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgery at the Mercy Hospital for Women in Melbourne, under the tutelage of the pioneers in the field.  This is where his passion started and has only grown since.

About My Practice

  • Infertility / In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) and all facets of
    Assisted reproductive technology (ART)
  • Laparoscopic Surgery for endometriosis, ovarian and other disorders.


We Will Develop a Plan Tailored to Your Needs.


I encourage both partners, if possible, to come along to the consultations.  This enables us to openly discuss your concerns, chart the progress and agree on the continued course of best action.

It also enables me to assess both partners and more rapidly arrive at an understanding of the primary and underlying causes.

The majority of the initial tests will be completed at QLD Fertility Group’s Gold Coast rooms, adjacent to our practice.  During treatment, the QGF nurses become the central point of contact, although Dr Swift makes the therapeutic decisions and performs the procedures.

The outcome of these investigations will be an optimised and 100% customised treatment program.

For your peace of mind, many of these consultations will be bulk billed

Developing your Fertility Management Plan

There are 5 key areas to consider:


Ovulation disorders are one of the most common causes of female infertility. An initial hormone profile can identify problems with ovulation and assist in the diagnosis of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), thyroid and pituitary function.

Semen Quality

With male infertility contributing to 40% of the cases that we see, semen testing is a priority at QFG. All male partners undertake a semen test to determine quantity and quality of sperm. We also offer a unique test, Sperm Chromatin Structure Assay (SCSA) to identify damaged DNA within the sperm, which may be affecting a couple’s fertility.

Maternal Age

Advanced maternal age is a major cause of infertility in women. As a female ages the quality of her eggs decreases and ovulation becomes less frequent, limiting her ability to conceive. The age of the female will help determine the intensity of the treatment required.  From 35, there is steady decline.

Pelvic Environment

Scans and laparoscopic surgery may be used to assess pelvic normality, endometrial development, tubal blockages and other gynaecological conditions which may be resulting in infertility.


Some couples experiencing infertility have a chromosomal abnormality affecting their success. QFG is the only IVF clinic in the state with an onsite genetics laboratory.

Our laboratory provides chromosome studies for all new patients and these are bulk billed to Medicare. The results can explain precise causes of infertility, and often determine appropriate treatments

You will meet with one of the Queensland Fertility Group Nurse Coordinators.  The QFG Nurse Coordinators are available to provide support and information as and when you need it. They understand how challenging this process can be and will educate you and your partner on how to use and administer any drugs you may need to take as part of your treatment.

Dr Swift will personally manage your complete treatment program from the initial consultation, therapeutic decision making, right through to pregnancy and delivery.
