Kelton Tremellen

Strategic Professor in Reproductive Medicine, Flinders University

Professor Tremellen completed his training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 2001, topping the MRANZCOG examination in Australia and NZ. Following his specialty training, he commenced sub-specialty training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (CREI). In addition, Professor Tremellen’s qualifications extend to a PhD as well as being Professor of Reproductive Medicine at Flinders University. Professor Tremellen has previously held the role of National Medical Director, Repromed. His clinical interests include male infertility and recurrent miscarriage. He also conducts all fertility related surgery (such as; micro-surgical reversal of female sterilisation, removal of fibroids and correction of congenital uterine abnormalities such as a uterine septum).

Professor Tremellen is the inventor of two recent innovations in the field of reproductive medicine; the “Egg Timer” and the male fertility pill “Menevit”. The Egg Timer is a combination of a blood test and pelvic ultrasound which helps determine how many good quality eggs remain within a woman’s ovaries. This test has now become a routine investigation for all women attending Repromed fertility clinics and is also becoming an increasingly popular aid to help women plan when to have a baby.

Menevit is a male fertility pill invented by Professor Tremellen and developed in collaboration with Bayer Australia. It has been shown in research studies conducted at Repromed (Menevit trial and the ADAM study) to reduce sperm DNA damage and boost IVF pregnancy rates.

Professor Tremellen also consults monthly at the Port Augusta Hospital.
