Our Doctors

Dr Roger Wyndham


Roger brings over 35 years of experience to Inner West Renal Services. He graduated from the University of Sydney in 1971 and completed his nephrology training at Prince Alfred and Queen Elizabeth Hospitals. He went on to do a fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, focusing on the investigation and management of hypertension. He also undertook further studies, in the United States, on the management of lipid disorders and cardiovascular disease.

He has been a VMO at Concord Hospital since 1979, to which he has made enormous contributions. With his background and research into the hormonal aspects of hypertension and epidemiology, he ran the Concord hypertension clinic for many years.  He also set up its first lipid laboratory and a multi-risk prevention clinic, utilising his studies in the complex multiple risk variables associated with cardiovascular disease.

He currently runs clinics in Lithgow, and Burwood and performs ambulatory blood pressure monitoring at the Concord Medical Centre. His clinical activities also include a renal biopsy service. He has ongoing clinical research projects at Concord Hospital. 

Roger is passionate about the diet and lifestyle aspects of his patients’ management and is writing a book on nutrition for all dialysis and renal patients.  His patient therapy plans are highly individualised and careful attention is paid to the family and societal aspects of management.
