Dr Rowena Garner

Obstetrics, Gynaecology

Dr Rowena Garner is a highly trained and experienced Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, who is passionate about providing outstanding professional Healthcare in all areas of Women's health. Her kind, caring and compassionate nature makes her extremely popular with her patients, along with of course, her extensive knowledge and specialist surgical skills in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Dr Garner largely completed her Obstetric and Gynaecology training at Nepean Hospital in Penrith. It was during that time that she worked closely with, and extensively trained with A/Prof Pardey, Dr Wallwork, Dr Pixton, Dr Wang, and Dr Dahiya in all areas of Obstetric and Gynaecological care, surgical skills and advanced Laparoscopic training. She has also undertaken rotations in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and surgery, at Westmead and Orange Hospitals.  

More recently, Dr Garner completed her Advanced training at the Royal Darwin Hospital, where she developed further skills, and enjoyed the unique experiences gained from caring for women in regional and remote Women's Health, and in Aboriginal Women's Health.

It was during her time working as a Registrar and then Senior Registrar at Nepean Hospital with A/Prof. John Pardey, that John was so impressed with Dr Garner, that he personally invited her to join him in his Private Practice as a full Associate. He identified Dr Garner as someone who he very much wanted to continue to care for his Obstetric patients following his retirement at the end of 2023, and he was thrilled when she accepted his invitation.

In 2023, Rowena was awarded her Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG).

It was also in early 2023 that Rowena began her own Private Obstetric and Gynaecological practice, and joined John Pardey & Associates, as a Senior Associate.

Rowena holds a VMO position at Nepean Private Hospital and is also a Senior staff specialist at Nepean Hospital where she continues to train and mentor Registrars and Junior Doctors in all areas of Obstetrics, Gynaecology, and Surgery.   Dr Garner operates and delivers babies, at both hospitals.
