About the Author

Dr Raphael Kuhn was Senior Lecturer in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Melbourne, and later Head of Gynecology Departments at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and  Royal Women’s Hospital. He spent more than 15 years as a consultant at Melbourne IVF and four years as Chairman of Melbourne IVF Human Research and Ethics Committee. In 2015, he created Infertility Second Opinion and spent two years providing independent opinions to patients who had not experienced IVF success.

The cases he saw during those two years prompted him to write this book.

He is a member of the Fertility Society of Australia, European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology and American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

On a more personal note, his empathy for the issues addressed in this book stems from personal family experience of the emotional roller coaster associated with IVF treatment.
