Areas of particular interest include Colposcopy, hysteroscopic/laparoscopic surgeries, menstrual disorders and benign gynaecological conditions.

Ms Maharajan strongly believes that treatment offered to women should be holistic, taking into consideration their view, opinions and she prides in offering women high quality care.
