Dr Nirasha Chiranjan

“Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love.” – Mother Teresa

‘’I have lived through the effects of cancer on close family and friends.  This first-hand experience inspired me to pursue my studies in Oncology.

 

Having walked this road, I am determined to give my patients the care they need, and so rightfully deserve.  I remain steadfast in my dedication to my patients, their families and have long ago resolved to make this walk with them – my life’s work.’’

Dr Chiranjan completed her MBchB at the University of Cape Town in 2006. Following two years of internship at McCord’s Hospital in Durban, Dr Chiranjan completed a year of community service at Evander Hospital in Mpumalanga. In 2010, she joined the Radiation Oncology Department at the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital.
