A/Prof David Greening is a senior obstetrician and gynaecologist with sub-specialist training in Reproductive Endocrinology and infertility, based in the Illawarra region of NSW since 2004.
He was born in New Zealand where he attended the University of Otago. His initial interest was in surgery, but then went on to complete his Obstetrics and Gynaecology training. Following this he had the chance to enter the subspecialty of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility where he took a position at the Human Assisted Reproduction Ireland (Dublin), then the Hammersmith IVF Unit (London) before being very fortunate to achieve a fellow position at GENEA.
In 2015, he saw that IVF was economically out of reach of many Illawarra patients and that IVF Australia had a number of units around Australia which addressed this. The model is called The Fertility Centre (TFC) and he joined IVF Australia to bring this model to Wollongong and the wider Illawarra region where he currently holds the position of Clinical Director.
A/Prof Greening has been associated with the University of Wollongong Medical School since inception as a senior lecturer, examiner and supervisor and they recently elevated him to (Honorary) Clinical Associate Professor where he thoroughly enjoys his relationship with the students and research team.
One of the most satisfying experiences for A/Prof Greening is being able to support patients during their entire fertility journey from conception (whether assisted or natural), throughout their pregnancy and then delivering a beautiful baby. His obstetric patients are a nice mix of spontaneously conceived and those that have had fertility treatments.
