About Dr Thevathasan
Do You Need a Gynaecologist or an Obstetrician?
The reproductive care of women is handled by a gynaecologist. Once a woman falls pregnant, her care and that of her baby in utero, and for a short time after the birth, is handled by an obstetrician.
Fortunately Dr Thevathasan is both an obstetrician and a gynaecologist.
Dr Christine Thevathasan's background
Dr Thevathasan grew up in Melbourne, Victoria and as a result has a heart for the women of the Malvern and Brighton areas of Melbourne.
She graduated from Monash University with an honours degree in Medicine in 1986.
Two years of internship at the Alfred Hospital followed and she was then accepted into an Obstetrics & Gynaecology (O&G) training programme at Monash Medical Centre, Mercy Hospital for Women, Bendigo Base, PANCH and another two years in Canterbury, England.
In 1997, Dr Thevathasan was awarded the Fellowship in O&G and she opened her practice in Malvern and Bayside Brighton.
Today at Raeburn House
Today, Dr Christine Thevathasan and her team go out of their way to provide excellent pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and delivery care for both women and their babies.
Their caring, welcoming and professional attention ensures your pregnancy is stress-free and enjoyable.
Dr Thevathasan knows how exciting and often nerve-wracking being pregnant can be, especially for first-time mothers. Consultations aren’t rushed and she encourages mothers-to-be to voice all their concerns so that she can provide them with the best gynaecological and obstetric care available.
As a women’s doctor, and practitioner of women’s medicine, she is second to none.
Where You Can Find Dr Thevathasan
The main consulting rooms are at Raeburn House in Malvern.
However, once a week Dr Thevathasan sees patients in Brighton.
If surgery is required this will be done at the Cabrini, Masada or Sandringham hospitals.
