    Dr Nicole Winter
    Oesophago-Gastric and Bariatric Surgeon

    Hi, I’m Dr. Nicole Winter. I am an Oesophago-Gastric and Bariatric Surgeon. I work at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne and Epworth Healthcare. I am also a Clinical Lecturer at Melbourne University, a board member of the Australian & Aotearoa New Zealand Gastro-Oesophageal Surgery Association (AANZGOSA) and the Pre-SET surgical supervisor at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne.

    I graduated my medical degree with Honours through the University of Melbourne in 2007. I was awarded my RACS surgical fellowship in 2016. I then completed subspecialty training in upper gastrointestinal surgery through AANZGOSA and further bariatric fellowship in Brisbane.

    As a specialist surgeon, my passion is and always has been a patient-centred approach to treating conditions affecting the oesophagus and stomach. This includes oesophageal and gastric cancer, hiatus hernia repair, anti-reflux surgery, and bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

    In my private practice, I lead a team of dedicated and trained professionals passionate about helping and supporting people through their weight loss journey. I offer surgical and non-surgical approaches to the management of obesity. I strongly believe in getting to know each of my patients and tailoring treatment for the best long term result.

    I also pride myself on being a modern surgeon, balancing my love for surgery and my love for my family. As a mum and a surgeon, I am truly in a privileged position doing what I am most passionate about.
