Dr David Winlaw, paediatric cardiac surgeon, now practices at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Centre in Ohio, USA.

Patients and family members should contact their paediatric cardiologist for further information about follow up.  Details of operations performed, and other clinical matters can be accessed via the paediatric cardiologist and Heart Centre for Children at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.




I am very pleased to be working in Cincinnati, with a great team in a Hospital renowned for its work in patient safety and quality. I’m looking forward to new challenges and a different working environment.

As well as providing clinical care and performing operations, I will be developing my research interests in genetics and bioengineering. Through Honorary appointments with the University of Sydney and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, I will continue to work on projects underway in Sydney.

I have greatly enjoyed working with colleagues and families during my 20 years at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. I look forward to maintaining contact and collaborating where possible.

I am especially grateful to the families who have facilitated the development of the clinical and basic research programs and know that this work will continue within the Heart Centre under new leadership.

During an interim period, Collette will be able to answer any questions arising via enquiries@profwinlaw.com.au.
