Serving as the Medical Director of Minimal Invasive Surgery at Saddleback Memorial Medical Center, Dr. Winter has performed over 1,300 robotic surgical procedures. Some of his recently published articles have shown better surgical results using robotic surgery for hysterectomy, cost-effectiveness of robotic hysterectomy, as well as excellent results performing robotic-assisted abdominal cerclage for incompetent cervix. He also has an interest in urogynecology, including pelvic reconstructive surgery and non-invasive surgical options for urinary incontinence.

AtSaddleback Memorial Medical Center’s training ground, Dr. Winter educates surgeons nationwide on the latest in robotic surgical techniques. With his many years of clinical research and several published papers, he additionally teaches advanced gynecologic surgical courses in the community, with the honor of lecturing/performing procedures throughout the United States and overseas.
