Giada Frontino obtained her degree in Medicine in 2003 and completed her Obstetrics and Gynaecology Specialist training at the Mangiagalli University Hospital of Milan, where she continued as a tertiary referral center hospitalist and researcher until 2015. Giada has also been in private practice since 2009 from where she has seen attending to the needs of local and expatriate families.

Giada has done extensive clinical research and training on fertility issues such as endometriosis and fibroids and performs fertility checks and assessment of fallopian tube patency through HyCoSy and Hysterosonography. She is widely published and has written various articles in peer-reviewed journals; several chapters in international and Italian textbooks; and she contributed to publications in proceedings for international (American, Australian) and local congresses.

Referees commend Giada for providing quality maternity care and pregnancy scans such as dating scans, gender scans, reassurance scans and Down’s risk screening (Fetal Medicine Foundation accredited).

Giada has hospital experience assisting in delivering high risk pregnancies and attending to gynaecological emergencies. She is also well placed to help with preventative work including well-woman checks, gynaecological scans, contraception, sexual health screening perimenopause and menopausal health.

Giada’s training in paediatric gynaecology and in adolescence-related problems (contraception and sexually-transmitted disease prevention) means that she takes a caring and empathic approach to easing young patients’ anxiety and fears.
