Tom was born and bred in Melbourne, obtaining his primary medical degree from Monash University. He undertook postgraduate studies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, training at Mercy Hospital and Monash Medical Centre, before leaving for the UK, where he spent 4 more years training at Princess Anne Hospital in Southampton. Whilst in the UK he also undertook scientific research in the field of molecular genetics, which led to the award of a Doctorate of Medicine. He has authored more than 25 articles and book chapters in peer-reviewed journals.
After completion of his 6 years of specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, he then undertook 4 more years of subspecialist training in Gynaecological Oncology. This comprised a year at Westmead Hospital in Sydney, and a year at King Edward Memorial Hospital in Perth. He completed his training at the prestigious James Cancer Center, part of the Ohio State University Medical Center in the USA.

Dr Manolitsas has been a leader in the Australian gynaecological community in the field of minimally invasive surgery. He has worked with Dr Tony McCartney to develop the techniques of Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH), and was the first gynaecologist in Melbourne to undertake this procedure. He has since taught the technique to many trainees and colleagues. He was the first Australian gynaecologist to embrace robotic surgery, which has been a part of his surgical expertise since 2007, and at the time of writing had completed more than 500 robotic cases. He has proctored more than 20 gynaecologists and other surgeons to ensure their safe take-up of robotic technology.
