Kiran is a highly trained Gynaecologist, proud to offer skills in key-hole or ‘minimally invasive’ laparoscopic surgery. Key-hole surgery offers superior safety, shorter hospital stay, faster return to work and good cosmetic results without large scars. He is an active member of the Australiasian Gynaecological & Endoscopic Society (AGES). He has attended training workshops around Australia and abroad. In 2018, he travelled to South Korea with the support of the Asia Pacific Gynaecological Endoscopy Training Group.
Kiran is able to look after women of all ages. He can provide assessment and complete care for the following conditions:
- Pelvic pain
- Ovarian cysts
- Heavy and/or long periods (‘Heavy menstrual bleeding’)
- Irregular periods
- Abnormal pap smears (‘Cervical screening tests’) and colposcopy
- Prolapse symptoms
- Abnormal urine symptoms (going too often, leaking urine with standing or coughing, or pain with passing urine)
- Menopause symptoms
- Vulval and vaginal conditions (e.g. lumps, irritation, dryness, abnormal discharge)
Kiran provides a holisitic approach to managing these gynaecological conditions. Care of women with some of these conditions often requires more than one treatment, and Kiran will use a multi-disciplinary team approach. If appropriate, Kiran will refer women to pelvic floor physiotherapists, dietitians, pain specialists and mental health specialists.
Kiran has trained in Sub-Speciality units focusing on Pelvic Pain, Abnormal Bleeding, Uro-gynaecology (Incontinence and prolapse) and Cervical Dysplasia.
For women with cancer, we refer women for care to Gynae-oncology Sub-Specialists locally in South East Melbourne.
Surgeries are primarily performed at the modern facilities at SJOG Berwick. Some surgeries may be required to be performed in local day surgery units.
Recurrent miscarriage and Infertility
Recurrent miscarriage and infertility can be a very difficult time for couples. Kiran will guide you and your partner with an initial assessment, tests, and a management plan.
For women with infertility, Kiran can provide a basic assessment and if you require tablet medication (e.g. clomid, letrozole), then Kiran will help you manage your cycles. For women with infertility requiring IVF-type care, then Kiran will refer care to private fertility services.
