Queensland Trophoblast Centre (QTC)
The Queensland Trophoblast Centre specialises in the management and care of women diagnosed with Gestational Trophoblastic Disease (GTD) for Queensland, northern New South Wales and the Northern Territory.
GTD, also known as molar pregnancy, is a rare complication of pregnancy that occurs in approximately 1 out of every 1000 pregnancies.
Our specialists are here to support you, offering comprehensive diagnostic, monitoring, treatment and management services. We understand learning about GTD and your early pregnancy loss is a sensitive topic. In addition to our specialist services, we provide emotional support and information along the way to ensure you are well informed throughout your treatment and follow up.
The Queensland Trophoblast Centre provides expert treatment, monitoring and management of GTD.
