Len and newborn (2)

Welcome

I am an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who has been practicing in Melbourne since 1985. I have worked extensively both overseas and in Australia.

I am one of Melbourne’s most experienced Obstetricians, having delivered over 20,000 babies in both the public and private system during this time.

I work with a team of dedicated and experienced midwives and a maternal and child health nurse ensuring that we provide outstanding care and support throughout your pregnancy, labour and beyond. I am dedicated to your obstetric, reproductive and gynaecological health.

I care for women from preconception, infertility, from those expecting completely uncomplicated pregnancies through to those with the most challenging medical and obstetric conditions. As I have a dedicated maternal and child health nurse on staff, postnatally you can expect the care to continue.

I have extensive experience and deliver a wide range of gynaecological services to women of all ages and have a particular interest in pelvic pain, menstrual disorders, PCOS, abnormal pap smears, endometriosis and vulval skin conditions. My gynaecological training included advanced laparoscopic surgical training with a particular interest in investigation of pelvic pain, endometriosis treatment and ovarian cyst removal.

I aim to provide state of the art evidence based quality care to every single patient.

I make myself available 24 hours/day, seven days a week. Although like all doctors, I am on a weekend roster, unless I am not in Melbourne for family commitments, I choose to make myself available to my patients every weekend.
I have been a senior Obstetrician at the Royal women’s Hospital and was the Head of a number of Specialist Units during this time specializing in high risk pregnancy.

In addition to my private practice, I am the Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Epworth Freemason’s – a position I have held for the past 15 years. With Professor Robert Rome, I established the Clinical Institute for Teaching and Research for the Epworth Group. I also established the training and teaching program for medical students from the University of Melbourne and supervised their training for the first ten years of the program.

I continue to be involved with the teaching and training of medical students from the University of Melbourne, trainee midwives and supervise trainee Obstetricians and Gyneacologists for the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG). I also continue to be pro-active in keeping abreast of the latest medical advancements.

In 2017, I was honored to be awarded an Order of Australia for my services to obstetrics and gynaecology.

My staff and I look forward to meeting you and you should always feel free to contact us by phone or email if you would like to discuss your care or would like to arrange an appointment.
