Welcome to the practice of Dr Phoebe Hong, where you can expect ‘Trusted Treatment Delivered with Care’
Dr Hong is a highly experienced qualified specialist providing private obstetric services and advanced gynaecology services to her patients at Cairns Private Hospital. After completing her medical degree at the University of Auckland in 2006, Dr Hong commenced her specialist training across multiple hospitals in New Zealand. In 2013, she moved to Australia and worked at Cairns Hospital as a Senior Obstetrics & Gynaecology Trainee and the Far North Regional Obstetric and Gynaecological Service (FROGS) Registrar.
Driven to provide women in Cairns and Far North Queensland access to the most up to date treatment modalities available, she moved to both Sydney and Melbourne to undertake further international and national training with a two year fellowship in Advanced Hysteroscopic and Laparoscopic Surgeries and a Master of Minimally Invasive Surgery.
She then established her private practice within the Cairns region in 2017, allowing patients in the area to access the latest available obstetric and surgical treatments.

Dr Hong is a highly trained and experienced gynaecologist and is passionate about laparoscopic surgical procedures (also known as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery) due to the great benefits it brings her patients.
Laparoscopic surgery is a modern surgical technique which uses very small incisions that can be as small as 0.5cm. The surgery is performed through these incisions using tiny instruments and a miniature camera called a laparoscope. Laparoscopic surgery results in less surgical trauma than major abdominal surgery, and allows for a quicker recovery – two key considerations for busy women of all ages. Focusing on your personal health goals including fertility-sparing surgery, Dr Hong will provide a tailored, personalised approach to meet your needs.
Some of the most common gynaecological conditions treated by Dr Hong include:
- Heavy Periods
- Painful Periods
- Abnormal Cervical Screening Test
- Pelvic Pain
- Ovarian Cyst
- Urinary Incontinence
- Uterovaginal Prolapse
- Cervical Incompetence
For the convenience of her patients and a desire to provide a world class service with easy access in a comfortable, relaxed environment for her patients, Dr Hong has established her modern, stylish practice in central Cairns located near easy parking and close to public transport.
