Dr Winston Oo is a passionate General Paediatrician trained across the Sydney Children’s Hospital network. He earned a Distinction in Paediatrics when he graduated from the University of Medicine, Mandalay, Myanmar in 2006. He joined the Paediatric training in Australia after completing the Australian Medical Council (AMC) Certificate. He subsequently obtained a Diploma in Child Health (South Australia) before completing a Master of Clinical Medicine (Leadership and Management) - CLAM. He is a current Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (FRACP) in Paediatrics and Child Health.
Dr Oo is an all-rounder General Paediatrician, also fluent in Mandarin, provides patient-centred care for families. He is friendly, approachable and dedicated to providing excellent care to ensure safety for his patients. He strives to listen and help families achieve the best outcomes for their children and is dedicated in working in a multidisciplinary team. He has helped children from family with bilingual background to get the appropriate therapy for early intervention and funding if it is eligible.
Dr Oo is particularly interested in developmental issues such as Speech Delay, Developmental Delay, Specific Learning disability (previously known as Dyslexia), Learning Difficulty, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Speech/language delay in children is common: up to 19% had isolated language delay and 6.7% had both speech and language delay. If the problem is not picked up timely, “recent research has shown that, on average, 2 children in every class of 30 will experience DLD (Developmental Language Disorder*) severe enough to hinder academic progress.” Children or toddler who has speech delay could be part of Global Developmental Delay (under 6) and later on at risk of developing Intellectual Disability. The speech can also be associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Given the complexity of the problem, Dr Oo will conduct a thorough assessment and necessary investigations, seek information from the school and link in with the allied health team for therapy to come to the underlying diagnosis.
(*DLD = "Developmental Language Disorder" specifically to identify a category of language disorder without associated biomedical conditions)
Dr Oo also has had extensive experience in general paediatric issues including newborn issues, including feeding difficulties, Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) and tongue tie procedure (under 3 months); long-term follow-up of premature newborns who required Neonatal Intensive Care and developmental delay such as delayed crawling/walking; bowel and bladder problems such as chronic constipation; and healthy weight and lifestyle issues.
