Welcome

indika welcome

Thank you for visiting my website.

I am an experienced Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, who has further specialised in Diagnostic Ultrasound Imaging and managing High Risk pregnancies.

I consult at my rooms in the Specialist Medical Centre, Norwest Private Hospital and at Westmead, booking confinements at The Westmead Hospital, Norwest Private Hospital and Westmead Private Hospital.

My medical training was undertaken at The University of Sydney medical school, where I graduated with first class honours. From an early stage, I was interested in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, doing my undergraduate elective term in an obstetric unit in Sri Lanka. I embarked on specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology early in my career and completed my training at The Westmead Hospital in Sydney, NSW.

Since then, I have completed further training in managing high risk pregnancies, and have qualified as a Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist (CMFM). I have been working at The Westmead Hospital as a Consultant Obstetrician and Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist since 2005, and continue to manage high risk obstetric patients in the public sector. Through this work, I have gained extensive experience and competency in managing normal and complicated pregnancies.

My qualifications also include further training in Obstetric and Gynaecological Ultrasound (Diploma in Diagnostic Ultrasound / DDU). I have a special interest in diagnosis and management of fetal abnormalities, first trimester screening, prenatal diagnostic procedures as well as 3D/4D ultrasound.

As a Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist, performing the highest level diagnostic ultrasound is a requirement of my work. I have many years of experience in scanning, diagnosing and providing specialised obstetric ultrasound at The Fetal Welfare Lab, The Westmead Hospital. I have also previously worked at SAN Ultrasound for Women, The Sydney Adventist Hospital for 5 years and since 2009 have been a Director at the Centre for Women’s Ultrasound, Westmead, a specialised obstetrics and gynaecology ultrasound service. I also provide a full range of specialised diagnostic ultrasound services in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, at my specialist rooms in Norwest Private Hospital.

I hold an academic title as a Clinical Senior Lecturer in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at The University of Sydney. I am also involved in several research projects investigating pre-eclampsia, fetal growth restriction and stillbirth. Currently I am completing a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) at The University of Sydney, researching into the placental pathology associated with pre-eclampsia and fetal growth restriction.

Although I have developed skills and experience in managing complicated and high risk pregnancies, I also take great satisfaction in guiding my patients through the experience of normal pregnancy and child birth.

As a mother of four children, I bring my experiences of pregnancy and childbirth to providing an understanding and caring environment for you, during your pregnancy and delivery.
