Breast Oncoplastic, Thyroid, and General Surgeon.  

As a specialist surgeon, Nipu views the surgical procedure as just one small part of the patient’s journey. She finds that getting to know her patients as individuals enables her to better appreciate what they and their loved ones are going through. When a patient’s concerns are truly heard, their doctor is able to respond to them meaningfully and effectively. 

This one-on-one interaction is what Nipu enjoys most about being a doctor. She understands that clear communication with her patients and their GPs is a vital part of giving patients the expert support they need at a challenging time. 

Nipu is passionate about educating the next generation of doctors. She is a clinical tutor in Surgery at the University of Sydney, where she completed both her degrees – Medical Science, and postgraduate Medicine –  which she graduated from with Honours. 

As a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Nipu is actively involved with the college, where she advocates for continued excellence and progressive change within the profession. 

Nipu undertook her surgical subspecialty training in Breast Oncoplastic Surgery, and Thyroid/ Parathyroid Surgery, at The Waikato Hospital in New Zealand, and the Breast Cancer Institute at Westmead Hospital. She is now a VMO at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, St.Luke’s Private Hospital, and Waratah Private Hospital.
