Ms Pushpakala Maharajan is an established consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist practising in Harpenden and Milton Keynes. Her speciality focus is colposcopy, menopause, menstrual disorders and abnormal bleeding, as well as minimal access surgery and benign gynaecological conditions. Presently, Ms Maharajan practices at two private clinics along with her work at the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital NHS Trust.
She received her primary medical qualification in 1995 before completing her post-graduate degree in obstetrics and gynaecology at Madras Medical College. While doing her specialist training in the Oxford deanery, Mr Maharajan worked in various teaching hospitals.
Ms Maharajan has dedicated herself to work beyond the clinic hours by being committed to college tutoring and being an educational supervisor for future obstetricians and gynaecologists, in addition to her involvement with her NHS practice. Not only is she the clinical director for obstetrics and gynaecology, but she also runs the post-menopausal bleeding one-stop clinic. Her innovative procedures in the clinic have reduced the number of hospital admissions due to the reduced need for general anaesthesia.
One of Ms Maharajan's passions in her field is ensuring that women are treated in a holistic manner, giving them high-quality care by considering their opinions and views. She approaches her work in an evidence-based fashion and offers tailored care to each patient. Communication between patient and healthcare professionals is a foundation point of Ms Maharajan's healthcare beliefs.
