Dr Bruce Bellinge

Dr. Bruce Bellinge

Dr Bruce Bellinge is a renowned Fertility Specialist with a PhD in Reproductive Science. While researching the early fetal development of domestic farm animals in the UK in the mid-1970s’ Dr Bellinge had little idea of the part he would play in bringing joy to hundreds of families not only in Australia but overseas as well. Fascinated by the reproductive working of larger mammals, Dr Bellinge eventually moved into a form of human reproductive technology that was so new and so revolutionary that many dismissed it as an impossible dream. Unfazed by the opposition, Dr Bellinge and his colleagues pushed on, excited by the possibilities of in-vitro fertilization. He opened Australia’s first private IVF laboratory in 1982 at the Avro Hospital in Subiaco, Western Australia, treating young couples desperate to have their first child. Technology and acceptance of IVF procedures have come such a long way that its success, in some cases, now rivals the numbers of couples conceiving naturally within any given monthly cycle. As a Director of the Karachi center Dr Bellinge ensures that the quality and standard of IVF services delivered in Pakistan are of the highest quality and comparable to any world class IVF center.
Dr Peter Burton

Dr. Peter Burton

Scientific Director Dr Peter Burton’s role at the Concept Fertility Centre, Perth covers three main areas. He directs the science department by overseeing the management of the embryology, semenology, biochemistry and genetics laboratories, coordinates concept’s research program and provides education. He has recently noted.
“I make sure we’re using up-to-date technology and review new procedures and new techniques to make sure we’re offering our patients an up-to- date service.”
Peter says, “If a new technique or procedure becomes available we review the literature and then make a decision whether to implement it or not.”
Concept Fertility Centre also has education/ information evenings which Peter runs along with the information stands at the Every Woman Expo and a GP education day. He is asked to lecturer various groups.
Part of Peter’s role at Concept is to coordinate the research program. He collaborates with researchers at UWA and Edith Cowan University and currently co-supervises two students who are doing their honours projects and two students doing their PhDs.

“It is exciting doing research, getting results and publishing your work in journals” he says.

“There’s a lot of data that gets published in the area of fertility. There are many different research journals so I do a lot of reading and attend international and national conferences to keep up- to-date with research and break-through.” Peter noted.

Peter further says, “My interest was always in reproductive biology and in the 80s at university the area was just starting to emerge. As a student at the time was extremely exciting IVF was available.”
“Initially I spent more time in the embryology lab and now its evolved away from that into management, education and research and spending more time talking to patients and reviewing their files.” Peter also talks to patients if they’re having problems and answers questions about their treatment.”
Peter enjoys seeing couples have success with their fertility treatments, particularly when they have tried for a long time. He also takes some solace and comfort being able to help unsuccessful couples move on and make the decision to stop treatment.
“What I try to do is be honest and provide useful information to help them (the couple) make decisions about their treatment and to listen to what they are saying about their experiences” he says.
