Dr Stefaan Pacquée

Associate Certified Urogynaecologist & Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeon MD, FRANZCOG, CU
While Stefaan's journey began in sports, notably soccer, an ankle injury saw him redirect his focus towards a career in medicine. Being happily married to a subspecialist in Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) and Diagnostic Ultrasound (DDU) provides a glimpse into his world of academic and scholarly competition! Now, as a devoted father of two energetic boys, his life is filled with endless joy and activity. Beyond professional and family life, Stefaan finds fulfillment in exploration through travel, the adrenaline rush of skiing, the freedom of cycling, a refreshing ocean swim, and the simple pleasure of savoring a fine glass of wine.
