Dr Simon Winder - Profile
BSc(Med), MBBS, MSS, FRANZCOG, MRMed, MWomHMed
I grew up in the western suburbs of Sydney where my parents were small business trades people. I attended the University of NSW and graduated with a medical degree BSc(Med), MBBS in 1996. Over the past 20+ years I have worked mostly in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and also have extensive experience in Accident & Emergency O&G Medicine. As part of a broad ongoing education I completed a Master of Strategic Studies (ANU). I have a Fellowship from the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and a Master of Reproductive Medicine degree, as well as a Master of Womens Health Medicine degree. I’m currently completing a Masters in Genetics and Diagnostic Genomics degree. It’s also been my privilege to serve our country overseas as a Defence Force Reservist.
I have a special interest in high risk obstetrics, early pregnancy, genetic conditions and infertility and its treatment. I am affiliated with Genea, which is a World Leading Fertility organisation with cutting-edge technology.
I operate at Wollongong Private Hospital and perform fertility procedures at the Wollongong Day Surgery. My consulting rooms are on the 7th floor of Wollongong Private Hospital, so parking, pathology, ultrasound and pharmacy are all conveniently co-located with the maternity ward, birthing unit and operating theatres. I provide comprehensive and caring antenatal care in partnership with you. I prefer normal vaginal delivery with interventions only when required. I deliver by caesarean section if necessary and by request after appropriate discussion.
If an operation is necessary for a gynaecological condition, selecting a surgeon with a special interest in that specific procedure and significant experience performing that specific surgical procedure on a regular basis does confer a health outcome benefit to the patient vs. selecting a less experienced surgeon.
After a thorough diagnostic workup, I will offer informed advice on a range of non-surgical and surgical options and the best surgeon for your particular procedure e.g. some surgeons have special expertise in extensive endometriosis or urogynaecology.
