Dr Steven Hatzikostas

MBBS, FRANZCOG
Obstetrician and Gynaecologist


Dr. Steven Hatzikostas has been a Melbourne resident all his life. He undertook his tertiary education at The University of Melbourne and is a graduate of the University of Melbourne Medical School.

Whilst studying for his Medical Degree he also gained a Master’s Degree in Science and published research conducted at the Howard Florey Institute of Experimental Physiology and Medicine.

After graduating in Medicine, Dr. Hatzikostas engaged in Physician training for four years at The Royal Melbourne Hospital and The Austin Hospital. He believes that his exposure to Science and research have framed his appreciation for evidence-based medicine. Training in Internal Medicine have been an invaluable asset when managing complex medical problems.

Dr. Hatzikostas commenced specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Australia and gained membership to the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (R.A.N.Z.C.O.G) in 1993. Dr. Hatzikostas then went onto work in England for three years as part of his overseas training and gained extensive experience.

Upon returning to Australia Dr. Hatzikostas worked as a Consultant Obstetrician at The Royal Women’s Hospital, The Northern Hospital, The Mercy hospital for Women and Box Hill Hospital for many years. He currently continues work at The Women’s Hospital and also maintains a connection with subspecialists at The Mercy Hospital for Women.

With a background in Internal Medicine he practices evidence-based medicine and has a commitment to the formal investigation and management of complex medical and obstetric problems.

Quality of medical care depends on a strong understanding of internal medicine and a high quality of surgical skill. All patients are fully assessed and investigated. No stone is ever left unturned and every patient enquiry is addressed and answered fully. He devotes considerable time to his patients and aims to establish a high level of communication. He uses self-drawn diagrams to explain medical conditions and management, and when appropriate issues brochures and algorithms of treatment plans. In all cases patients have a comprehensive understanding of their medical condition, explanations of proper management and a risk / benefit analysis of alternative treatment options. Dr. Hatzikostas recognises that patients have a right to make informed choices and understands the importance of accommodating patients wishes and expectations whenever medically appropriate.

The practice of medicine can be very complicated. High quality care comes from combining the experience of subspecialists whenever the need arises”.


Dr. Hatzikostas works closely with many subspecialists such as:

  • Fertility specialists.
  • Tertiary level ultrasound specialists
  • Geneticists
  • Perinatal specialists at The Women’s and Mercy Hospitals.
  • Paediatricians and Neonatologists
  • Laparoscopic surgeons.
  • Urogynaecologists.
  • Oncologists.

Dr. Hatzikostas spends long hours at Northpark Private Hospital and believes in continuity of care by not sharing care in a group practice. He is on duty every day and at all hours. All patients have his mobile number and he is available to call on any day to answer questions and address concerns.

Success in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is based on being available for all patients at all times, maintaining experience, competence and being satisfied with nothing but the best. Patients and their children are part of a growing family of friends which has been expanding over the years and he thinks that is wonderful part of his job.

Virochana had her early training at one of the premier institutes in India--PGIMER--having meritoriously attained admission to the coveted institute through sheer hard work and focus. A rigorous training and multidisciplinary exposure flamed the desire to serve, help and cure with an evidence based approach. The high volume of complicated obstetrics and gynaecology at the tertiary institute exposed her to a variety of disciplines including oncology, sub fertility, high risk obstetrics and gynaecology. Exposure to teaching and peer review publications ignited a deep seated passion to teach, review, and publish data which has continued to date. After a series of appointments as a lecturer in a teaching University, she pursued her dream of clearing MRCOG, subsequent to which she worked as a Specialist in the Middle East for 5 years, working in state-owned hospitals offering high risk obstetric services, gynaecology, and IVF with deliveries of 15000 per year. She migrated to Australia, getting her FRANZCOG shortly after, and did 3 years of Fellowship in IVF.

"Having had exposure to a multicultural and international Women’s Health Units across different continents has given me a holistic view of different dynamics and cultural awarenesses.

"My outlook revolves around catering to conservative values as well as liberal, idealism as well as rebellion, and ultimately having a non-judgmental, supportive and broad-minded approach to patient care.

"The current patient is smart and net savvy, and has information support from internet etc , hence they would like guidance on options and deserve an empathetic, compassionate yet informative guidance with availability and easy accessibility.”
