In 1987, Dr. Stefaan Bafort graduated with distinction as a ‘Doctor of Medicine’ from the Catholic University of Leuven. Subsequently, he specialized in obstetrics and gynaecology from 1987 to 1992. In 1992, he obtained his diploma as an OBGYN and began working at Heilig-Hart Hospital in Ostend, where he continued to practice after the merger with AZ Damiaan Oostende Hospital.
Throughout his professional career, Dr. Bafort has consistently pursued innovation and cutting-edge techniques to enhance patient care. He has taken a particular interest in three-dimensional ultrasounds during pregnancy, pelvic floor repair, and minimally invasive surgical interventions. Due to ongoing technological advancements, Dr. Bafort has attended numerous training sessions and advanced courses both in Belgium and abroad.
As a result, he’s specialized in laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. In September 2019, in collaboration with his colleague Dr. Charlotte Maene, he began practicing robotic surgery within the obstetrics and gynaecology department, focusing on procedures such as uterine fibroid removal, pelvic muscle repair, endometrial cancer surgery, and surgical treatment of endometriosis.
