Dr David Rosen is the Administrative Director and the AGES Training Director of the Sydney Women's Endosurgery Centre (SWEC) based at St George Private Hospital.
He is a leading exponent of keyhole surgery for prolapse, incontinence, endometriosis and pelvic pain, menstrual abnormalities, fibroids and fertility issues as well as running a general gynaecology practice for pap smear abnormalities and gynaecological review.
He graduated from the University of Sydney School of Medicine in 1987. He trained in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at King George the Fifth hospital (now RPAH) and then undertook a 2 year Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynaecology at the Sydney Women’s Endosurgery Centre, a part of the St George Hospital. In 1998 he undertook further training in endoscopic surgery with Professor Christopher Sutton in London.
Since returning to Australia the following year he has established a Private practice specializing in Gynaecology only with clinics in Kogarah, (at St George Private Hospital) Bondi Junction and Macquarie University Hospital. In addition, he conducts regular public outpatient clinics at St George and The Royal Hospital for Women, at which he supervises the training of Fellows, Registrars and Medical Students in his chosen discipline.
In 2020, David was appointed to the position of Medical Director of the Centre of Excellence programme in Minimally Invasive Gynaecology and Endometriosis Centre at SWEC, and has lectured, published and taught advanced laparoscopic surgical techniques to many gynaecologists in Australia and overseas.
David is married with 3 children and is a keen cyclist, plays awful guitar and would like to spend less time in the gym but somehow cannot kick the habit. Apart from family milestones, the highlight of his life to date was walking the Kokoda track which he completed in 2005 with his friend and colleague Dr James Opperman and more recently, performing with his fellow middle-aged wannabees in their band “The Hummers” (bookings encouraged...please book us!).
His particular interests are;
- Female pelvic floor dysfunction – prolapse and urinary incontinence
- Pelvic pain disorders especially endometriosis
- Menstrual bleeding problems and heavy menstrual loss
- Fertility problems
In addition to these, we see many women for insertion of IUD’s and contraceptive advice, issues surrounding the menopause and pap smear abnormalities and colposcopy.
