Breast & General Surgeon
BMedSci, MBBS (Hons), MS ( Breast), FRACS.
Dr Nipu Jayatilleke is an Breast and General Surgeon based in central Sydney and southern Sydney, and is a VMO surgeon at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, St.Vincent’s Private, and St.George Private Hospitals.
As a specialist surgeon, Dr Jayatilleke regards the surgical procedure itself as only a very small part of being an excellent surgeon. She sees the trust her patients and their loved ones place in her, as a privilege, and she takes this responsibility very seriously. As a consequence, Dr Jayatilleke’s clinical practice is underpinned by the importance of empowering her patients, at what is often a vulnerable and challenging moment in their lives. Her ability to listen and connect with her patients, and communicate clearly and empathetically, are the non technical skills that Dr Jayatilleke prides in herself. She knows that modern cancer treatment is a multidisciplinary team approach, and having open, collaborative communication between herself, oncology teams and the patient’s General Practitioner are intrinsic to providing outstanding care.
Dr Jayatilleke is located at our Miranda clinic.
