Clinical Associate Professor David Greening

Clinical Associate Professor David Greening graduated from Otago University in New Zealand in 1986. He initially started Surgical training before changing to Obstetrics and Gynaecology training for a brief time.

David felt unsure of himself so took 5 years off coming to Australia in 1991. He spent time in the Torres straits on Thursdays Island, was a GP in Gladstone Queensland then an RFDS flying doctor for 2 years at Broken Hill often covering obstetrics there. An international position with AEA in Asia followed before returning to start O & G training at Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne.

He was fortunate to gain entry into the subspecialty in 2000 and was sent Dublin and London to undertake his training. In Dublin he began microsurgical operating training with Dr Michael Darling the preeminent microsurgeon in Dublin.

From London, where he worked as a fellow to Lord Professor Robert Winston at the prestigious Hammersmith IVF unit, he was offered the opportunity to join Sydney IVF (now GENEA) and returned in 2002 to spend 2 years further training in Sydney.

Then he opened his practice in Wollongong in 2004. For a number of years, he travelled to Sydney operating on his own patients with Dr Rob Woolcott Australia leading reversal surgeon (now retired) at Strathfield Private Hospital until he started operating doing microsurgical vasectomy reversals in Wollongong alone over 10 years ago. He has done microsurgical tubal ligation reversals since 2004 locally.

David also is a well-known local obstetrician and delivers many of the patients he treats be it by any fertility treatment like IVF, or even microsurgical vasectomy/tubal ligation reversal.

Taking a couple through the journey and delivering their baby is a very satisfying part of his professional life.
