Bio

Dr Brieger graduated in 1987 from the University of Sydney. He then trained at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and King George V Memorial Hospital for Mothers and Babies, culminating in his appointment as Senior Registrar and then Clinical Superintendent in 1993 and 1994. Having completed his training in Australia he took up a position of Visiting Lecturer and then Clinical Associate Professor in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Shatin. At that time he continued in private Obstetrics and Gynaecology as well as embarking on sub-speciality training in Urogynaecology, gaining certification in that field in 2002.

Upon his return to Australia in 1997 Dr Brieger was appointed acting Director of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at King George V Memorial Hospital for Mothers and Babies until his appointment as a Visiting Medical Officer in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney. In 2005 he was appointed as a Senior Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Royal North Shore Hospital. He held that position until 2013 at which time he decided to concentrate on private Obstetrics and Gynaecology at both the Mater Hospital, Sydney and North Shore Private Hospital, Sydney.

His work in academia and teaching has been continuous. He has over 20 publications in peer reviewed international journals, has been awarded research grants both in Australia and overseas, and has been an examiner for the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists from 2005 to 2015.

He continues to be actively involved in research, in particular in the area of pre-eclampsia or hypertension in pregnancy. He was instrumental in the formation of the research organisation PEARLS, a body that raises funds for research into pre-eclampsia. As a committee member for the NSW Medical Council since 2015, he is committed to maintaining a high standard of medical care. He has an interest in both high risk and low risk Obstetrics.

Dr Brieger’s practice is located opposite the Mater Hospital in Sydney. He lives in close proximity to North Shore Private Hospital and the Mater Hospital and can attend both hospitals within minutes of being called from his consulting rooms and home.
