ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S LEADING EXPERTS IN FERTILITY AND ENDOSCOPIC SURGERY
Dr Haider Najjars’s extensive training and expertise gives his patients and referring doctors confidence, and his friendly manner provides reassurance at a time when you may be feeling vulnerable.
Dr Najjar speaks English, German and Arabic fluently. He trained in obstetrics and gynaecology at Monash Medical Centre, where he received the Young Scientists Award from the International Menopause Society for his research in Premature Menopause.
He then completed his fellowship in Gynaecological Minimally Invasive Surgery, and was awarded the Travelling Fellowship by the Australian Gynaecology Endoscopic Society for his work conducting laparoscopic surgery training workshops for registrars. This took him to the US for further training in laparoscopic and robotic surgery.
I’ve seen firsthand the impact infertility and gynaecological disorders can have, and it’s made me determined to continually advance treatment and outcomes in this area.Dr Haider Najjar
COMPLEMENTARY SKILLS PROVIDE COMPLETE CARE
Dr Najjar’s combination of medical and surgical skills makes many different approaches to treatment possible. Endoscopic surgery complements infertility treatment to a significant extent, and minimally invasive gynaecological surgery provides enormous benefits to women, including a quicker recovery with less pain and minimal (if any) scarring. Almost all Dr Najjar’s surgery is carried out this way. He also enjoys the very personal rewards of obstetrics, and being part of his patients’ lives at a special time.
