Ms Pushpakala Maharajan
MBBS, DGO, DFFP, MRCOG
I am an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist employed by the Luton and Dunstable University Hospitals NHS Trust. I completed my diploma in obstetrics and gynaecology at Madras Medical College (India). I later trained in Oxford deanery and have worked in various teaching hospitals in the Oxford region. I specialise in colposcopy, general gynaecology, minimal access surgery, outpatient hysteroscopy and gynaecology scanning. Areas of particular interest include menstrual disorders and benign gynaecological conditions.
Currently I run the post-menopausal bleeding one stop clinic at Luton and Dunstable Hospitals which is well appreciated by patients. The procedures have reduced the need for general anaesthesia, thereby reducing hospital admission. I specialise in removing polyps with different innovative techniques.
I see patients with abnormal smears, abnormal bleeding (post coital and intermenstrual bleeding). I do outpatient colposcopic procedures, like loop treatment under local anaesthesia.
I see patients with general gynaecology problems, fibroids chronic pelvic pain, and ovarian cysts in my general gynaecology clinic.
I am currently the College Tutor for trainees in Luton and Dunstable University Hospitals and I pride myself in facilitating a good environment for the junior and middle grade doctors who will become tomorrow’s reputed consultants.
I strongly believe that treatment offered to women should be holistic, taking into consideration their view and opinions, and I take pride in offering women high quality care. My advice and approach are always evidence based and supported by the provision of evidence-based information offered in a form that is tailored to the needs of the individual patient. I strongly believe that good communication between healthcare professionals and patients is essential.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Ms Pushpakala Maharajan at Spire include:
Spire Harpenden Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
I live with my husband, an IT Consultant (Engineer), and our son. Outside work, I am interested in aerobics, gymnasium and yoga. I love travelling and enjoy fine dining experiences.
