Dr Nagendra graduated from Monash Universty with First Class Honours and was awarded subject medals in Pathology and Psychiatry. He completed his anaesthetic training at Prince of Wales Hospital and Sydney Children’s Hospital followed by a Fellowship at Royal North Shore Hospital. He also worked in aeromedical retrieval with Careflight during this time.
Dr Nagendra is currently a consultant at Prince of Wales Hospital where he is involved with teaching anaesthetic trainees, particularly in his areas of clinical interest – airway surgery and neurovascular procedures.
Dr Nagendra also has a long standing commitment to medical aid work and has worked with Medecins Sans Frontieres – most recently in a trauma hospital in the Middle East.
Aid work is currently on-hold for Dr Najendra as his two young children now take up most of his time. He enjoys going on long walks with his ageing border collie whilst listening to current affairs podcasts to unwind.
Dr Najendra’s aim is to make sure that each and every patient of his has a safe and comfortable experience on the day of their procedure.
