Warren grew up in Townsville, North Queensland. Prior to commencing medical studies Warren completed a Bachelor of Science with Honours and went on to commence a PhD. It didn’t take him too long to realise that pure research was not for him and he then applied to undergo medical studies. During his first and second year of medical studies he completed his previous research as a Masters degree in Science. Warren completed his medical training, with honours, at the University of Queensland, (Brisbane) in 1994. Six years of hospital jobs followed, including 2 years as a solo GP running a small country hospital in Central West Queensland with an attached general practice. Warren then commenced a Diploma in obstetrics and gynaecology in order to improve his obstetric skills in preparation for a career as a Rural GP. Needless to say he never quite got back to that particular career path.
I commenced training in O&G in 2001 in Hobart, spending the next 5 years in Tasmania. In 2006 I completed my training at the Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne working as a Senior Registrar mainly on their busy labour ward. In 2007 I completed further training as a Urogynaecology Fellow in a joint position with the Monash Medical Centre and the Mercy Hospital for Women. I then commenced private practice in Hobart in 2008.
I am interested in all things related to general obstetrics and gynaecology and my aim is to provide a holistic approach to your specific problem. My 12 months training in urogynaecology has given me invaluable surgical experience and a continuing special interest in the management of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. I have also developed a special interest in the assessment and management of vulvar and pelvic pain. I work very closely with pelvic floor physiotherapists in order to provide a team approach to your urogynaecological or pain issue.
I am married with three children. In my spare time I enjoy watching movies with my wife (the State Cinema in North Hobart is a favourite), taking our dogs on walks and photography.
