Dr Ritu Rana

Obstetrician, Gynecologist & Fertility Specialist

Dr Ritu Rana is a fellow of the Royal Australian College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (FRANZCOG) and a Member of Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG, London, UK). She has more than fifteen years of experience in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with a special interest in advanced laparoscopic surgery, infertility and high-risk obstetrics along with management of labour.

Dr Rana completed her seven years obstetrics and gynaecology training from Yorkshire (UK). As part of this training, she worked in tertiary hospitals in the NHS UK in Leeds & Bradford where she gained enormous experience in handling very high-risk Obstetrics both antenatal and in labour.

With an interest in minimal access surgery, Dr Rana undertook advanced training in gynaecology (includes laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery) to be able to provide less invasive methods of treatment for her patients. She has also worked and trained in the referral centre for diagnosis and management of endometriosis and received immense experience in the diagnosis and management of gynae malignancy.

In 2011/12 Dr Rana completed a fellowship in reproductive medicine at the Leeds Centre of Reproductive Medicine, UK where the clinic performed more than 2000 IVF cycles during that period (then the highest in the UK). This extensive training provided invaluable experience in the management of couples with infertility including assisted reproductive techniques that includes IUI, IVF and ICSI.

She was awarded the certificate for Early Pregnancy and Advanced Gynaecology Ultrasound Scan by the British Fertility Society in recognition of her outstanding commitment to obstetrics and gynaecology.

Dr Rana has a very kind and empathetic manner towards her patients and receives excellent feedback from her patients and their GPs. The decision to create, run and manage Ritu Rana Medical was the logical next step in her professional journey and she leads by example providing a high-level of patient care.
