Dr Amani Harris is an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who has an interest in advanced endoscopic gynaecological surgery, obstetrics and fertility.
Her passion for advanced laparoscopic surgery took her to Melbourne where she completed a two-year Australasian Gynaecological Endoscopy and Surgery Society (AGES) fellowship in minimally invasive surgery, working with renown advanced laparoscopic surgeons in Australia and worldwide at Monash Health. She also completed a one-year fellowship in minimally invasive surgery at the Sydney West Advanced Pelvic Surgery (SWAPS) Unit during her specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology, which was undertaken at Westmead Hospital. She obtained her medical degree with honors from the University of Sydney, after completing a Bachelor of Medical Science at the University of New south Wales.
Her love for academia and women’s health is exemplified by her attainment of a Master of Advanced Gynaecological Surgery at the University of Western Sydney and active involvement in clinical research reflected by an extensive list of publications. Dr Harris is an active member of the AGES community, the leading endoscopy group in Australasia, often presenting at domestic and international conferences and workshops. This provides a dynamic platform for her to further her influence on education and research in the field of women’s health.
Dr Harris is at the forefront of advanced surgical techniques, offering a minimally invasive approach using laparoscopic surgery and is one of just a handful of specialists across Australia trained in single incision laparoscopic surgery. Endoscopic surgery compliments infertility treatment and minimally invasive gynaecological surgery provides enormous benefits to women including faster recovery, less pain and minimal (if any) scarring.
A skilled and passionate obstetrician, Dr Harris is a strong advocate for empowering women’s choices, through actively listening to her patients, engaging them in their management plan and providing holistic evidence-based advice. She finds it personally gratifying and a privilege to share the journey with her patients before, during and after pregnancy.
