Dr Bell commenced private practice in 2021, consulting from the Specialist Suites at Mater Health Hub Springfield and operating at Mater Private Hospital Springfield. Dr Bell is an expert in Breast and Endocrine surgery and provides treatment of general surgical conditions such as gallbladder and (laparoscopic) hernia surgery.

Originally from the Netherlands, Dr Bell completed medical school in 2003 and worked in Utrecht as a junior doctor. In 2006, she relocated to Australia and was subsequently accepted into the Queensland General Surgical training program. She completed her training in 2014 and became a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

During her surgical training years, Dr Bell developed an interest in Breast and Endocrine surgery and pursued a further two years post-fellowship training with BreastSurgANZ where she gained additional experience in oncoplastic breast surgery and endocrine surgery. Her first fellowship year took place at Mater Hospital Brisbane, under supervision of Professor Chris Pyke. Dr Bell then completed an interstate fellowship at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, regarded as one of the leading centres in advanced oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgery.

Since returning to Brisbane, Dr Bell has fulfilled several locum positions at Mater Hospital Brisbane and the Princess Alexandra Hospital before accepting a permanent position at Ipswich Hospital in 2018.

Dr Bell is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Queensland, where she fulfils her passion in teaching medical students. She also holds an appointment at BreastScreen QLD and instructs on the ASSET (surgical skills) course for aspiring surgical trainees.

Dr Bell consults fortnightly at Mater Health Buh, Springfield and practices privately at Mater Private Hospital Springfield. Her wait time is less than 2 weeks. Cancers are prioritised to less than a week.
