Mark Ruff is an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist working on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and North Shore. Mark has a strong belief in patient centred care, ensuring individualised management plans tailored to each patient’s needs and desires.
In his final two years of specialist training, Mark pursued an interest in advanced laparoscopic gynaecological surgery, successfully obtaining a fellowship position with the Australasian Gynaecological Endoscopy & Surgery Society. While completing this fellowship, he also obtained a Masters of Advanced Gynaecological Surgery from Western Sydney University, graduating with distinction. Combined, these higher level qualifications give him both the knowledge and surgical skill to tackle complex operative gynaecological issues in the best manner for his patients, utilising the most up to date evidence and techniques. Mark is also passionate about obstetrics, which is the side of O&G which drew him into the specialty in the first place.
Mark operates in public and private hospitals, with official appointments at Mona Vale Hospital and North Shore Private Hospital.
Outside of medicine Mark’s interests include music and his family. He currently plays principal trombone with the NSW Doctors Orchestra and the Lane Cove Concert Band.
In addition to English Mark can speak conversational Japanese, meaning most consultations can be done in Japanese if necessary.
