Gayle Fischer is a dermatologist with a special interest in vulvovaginal skin disease. She has been working and researching in this field for over 20 years and holds a Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Sydney for her thesis "Vulval disease in children and adults".

Concurrently she has subspecialised in paediatric dermatology and was a Visiting Medical Officer at the Children's Hospital at Westmead from 1991 to 2011. She continues her work in this area at The Royal North Shore Hospital.

Dr Jennifer Bradford

Conjoint Senior Lecturer
The University of Western Sydney

Jenny Bradford is a gynaecologist who now specialises exclusively in vulvo-vaginal disorders and pelvic pain. This commitment came about from her observation that the (then) standard treatments for these conditions were largely ineffective. She has worked for more than twenty years to improve the understanding of, and treatments for, these distressing conditions.

Dr Bradford conducts an outpatient clinic at UWS Blacktown, in order to teach the next generation of gynaecologists.

A/Prof Fischer and Dr Bradford have published many peer-reviewed scholarly articles and have co-authored a textbook "The Vulva: a clinician's practical handbook". (Family Planning Organisation NSW 2010).

About Our Practice

The Centre for Vulvovaginal Disorders is a unique private practice run by a dermatologist (A/Prof Fischer) and a gynaecologist (Dr Bradford) with a focus on vulvovaginal conditions. Our aim is to manage these disorders sensitively and effectively.

We use data built up from our collective 40 years of experience in this field, to further research in this important, but neglected area of medical practice.

We are committed to providing the best possible care in both the private and public sectors, conducting research into vulval disease and providing education and information.

Northern Paediatric Dermatology is run by A/Prof Fischer to provide expert care of children with birthmarks and skin disorders.
