Dr NIRVEN Maharaj is an independent Specialist Radiation and Clinical Oncologist who was born and schooled in Pietermaritzburg.

“I received my initial medical degree from the University of Natal in 2003. In 2007, I began my Oncology career in the United Kingdom, gaining experience at the Christie NHS Foundation Trust in Manchester, England, as well as completing courses at the Patterson Institute. Following this, I worked in oncology at Cork University Hospital in the Republic of Ireland,” he said.

After three years in the United Kingdom, he returned to Cape Town where he completed a specialisation in Oncology at the University of Stellenbosch. “In 2013, I was fortunate in being able to pursue further training in Oncology at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Once completed, I returned to South Africa and engaged in private practice in Ballito and Richards Bay before returning to Pietermaritzburg,” added the doctor. He said his aim is to provide comprehensive treatment and advice that is accessible to all doctors and patients.

“All patient treatment shall be carried out in PMB with the Radiotherapy being done at the Msunduzi Radiotherapy unit at Netcare St Annes Hospital.

“I am happy to review any cancer patients in my practice to further their evaluations and treatment plans, and I am always available to provide any Oncology related advice to both staff and doctors.”

“If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the welcoming staff at the Dorchester Cancer Centre.

“I look forward to working with other doctors, allied health professions and, most importantly, patients to provide the best possible treatments and outcomes,” said Dr Maharaj. — Supplied
