Dr Nipu Jayatilleke

Breast, Endocrine and General Surgeon


Dr Nipu Jayatilleke is a specialist Breast Oncoplastic, Endocrine and General Surgeon. Nipu undertook her surgical subspecialty training in Breast Oncoplastic Surgery, and Thyroid / Parathyroid Surgery, at The Waikato Hospital in New Zealand, and the Breast Cancer Institute at Westmead Hospital. She is now a VMO at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse, St Luke's Private Hospital, and Waratah Private Hospital NSW. Nipu is passionate about educating the next generation of doctors; she is a clinical tutor in Surgery at The University of Sydney, where she completed both her Medical Science and Postgraduate Medical degrees.

As a specialist surgeon, Nipu views the surgical procedure itself as just one small part of the patient's journey. She finds that getting to know her patients as individuals enables her to better appreciate what they and their loved ones are going through.  This one-on-one interaction with her patients is what Nipu enjoys most about being a doctor. She understands that clear communication (and keeping in touch with their GP) is a vital part of giving patients the expert and caring support they need at this challenging time.
