She is also involved with teaching medical students from the University of NSW and supervising O&G Specialist trainees.
Hang’s clinical interests include high risk obstetrics, laparoscopic surgery and all areas of general gynaecology
Her interest is in general gynaecology with an emphasis on minimally invasive procedures, vulvar and cervical pathology, treatment of incontinence and prolapse as well as high-risk obstetrics.

Kylie has been living and working as an obstetrician and gynaecologist in Northeast Victoria since 2018. Originally from Perth, she and her family moved to Wodonga to finish her training in 2016. She then spent a year in Ballarat gaining further experience in laparoscopic surgery and fertility care. Following this, she had a busy public and private practice in Wangaratta, before she and her family made the decision to return to Wodonga in 2022.
Kylie provides care for women across the breadth of general obstetrics and gynaecology, with interests in general obstetrics, laparoscopic surgery (including laparoscopic hysterectomy), fertility care, and cervical and vulval disease. She is actively involved in supervision of trainees in obstetrics & gynaecology, as well as the teaching of medical students.
She is passionate about encouraging women to prioritise their own health care needs, because so often women prioritise the needs of those around them above their own, which in the longer term can compromise quality of life & the ability to care for those most important.
