Introduction

We are a team of Gastroenterologists, Colorectal and General Surgeons aiming to provide quality and affordable care for our patients.

All our patients following the initial consultation leave with a treatment plan that encompasses all their concerns, both medical and surgical, with a timeline for treatment and a cost-estimate, so there are absolutely no financial surprises along the way.

We are strictly “no-gap” for all endoscopic and surgical procedures. Our anaesthetists and pathologist also follow this philosophy.

Every patient has constant email access to our clinical nurses and practice managers for issues prior to, during, and after treatment. We know this helps put your mind at ease.

Almost half of our referrals come from other patients, and we are very proud of this fact. We have treated entire families of some of our patients and would feel privileged to treat yours. Put yourself in the hands of quality physicians and surgeons. Our hands.

Vision

A New Era of Medicine and Surgery – from the director Dr Pran Yoganathan.

Having been trained in medicine and during the rise of the technological era, I have watched techniques and knowledge improve drastically in the last decade. Australian doctors have accumulated a broad based and widely taught basic skill set that will allow for exponential growth in minimally invasive surgical and endoscopic techniques.

Our average client now has a wealth of knowledge at their fingertips thanks to the internet. However, the empowerment granted can be a double-edged sword as the amount of information is daunting and often incorrect.

We will aim to help our clients experience the highest level of care, but also exceed it, and be able to communicate our techniques, concerns, and results in an effective manner to our new genre of patients.

I am also a believer in the concept of “modern lifestyles” contributing to illness and disease. We are equipped with the knowledge to help guide our clients to achieve their best possible health. I am passionate about human health and I believe our current approach of a drug-centric method is fraught with issues due to economic constraints. A comprehensive approach to healthcare encompassing nutrition is what is required, and my team will aim to provide this.
