Obstetrician, Gynaecologist

Shavi is a Specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist specialising in general and high risk obstetrics, gynaecology, colposcopy and minimal invasive surgery.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery with Honours from Monash University (Melbourne, Australia) together with a Bachelor of Medical Science with First-Class Honours in 2007. Following completion of his specialty training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (FRANZCOG) with Monash Health, the largest provider of maternity services in Victoria, he commenced a PhD in gynaecology. He was awarded a prestigious NHMRC PhD research fellowship to assist with this project.

Shavi is one of few clinicians to concurrently hold a position as a specialist in both the Obstetrics and Gynaecology departments with Monash Health. Amongst many other duties, he supervises and operates on 'high risk' Caesarean sections at Monash Medical Centre, including the most complicated Caesarean deliveries that are performed at our hospital.

Finally, as an Adjunct Lecturer at Monash University, he is heavily involved in the training and advancement of the next generation of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. This not only helps to keep his practice up to date and relevant, but also means that he has developed an excellent ability to explain complex medical terms in easy to understand language.

When not at work, Shavi enjoys spending quality time together with his wife, chasing their baby daughter around.
