Dr Altaf | Vascular surgeon Perth
Meet Dr Altaf
and his team
“My goal? To help improve your quality of life”
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to vascular surgery. I address your individual needs with the most appropriate and best management option. This is a joint decision. There is no rush during my consultations; The appointments take as long as they need to take.
As a vascular and endovascular surgeon in Perth, Dr Altaf builds on his extensive training in the UK and here in Perth. He believes that – in order to help patients – a surgeon thrives when he has a genuine passion for the skills that are needed.
It started for Nishath after his years as a junior doctor in Manchester, and then in Leicester and Nottingham throughout his surgical training.
When I was first exposed to vascular surgery, my role models and mentors in the UK showed me a future based on focus, high standard of care and the variety of treatment options in vascular and endovascular surgery.
One of the first realisations that confirmed Dr Altaf’s passion for vascular medicine was the fact that other surgeons would call on vascular surgeons when excessive bleeding happens in other types of surgery.
In addition to his passion for patient care – improving the patient’s quality of life, Dr Altaf discovered a second professional purpose in the field of research. Research is not a goal in itself. For him, ongoing efforts in vascular research are important to keep improving the care levels in surgery and beyond.
+40 peer-reviewed publications
Dr Altaf’s passion for research led to a PhD in vascular surgery at Nottingham University, and to the publication of numerous papers and presentations at international conferences.
Dr Nishath Altaf prides himself in the impact of his research work, with the outcomes now being used in Perth as well as in the UK, USA and Europe.
Many of the improvements in vascular surgery occurred here in Perth, which is obviously an additional benefit for patients who are looking for a vascular or endovascular surgeon in WA.
Passion for technology and innovation
Being in the public system – I get access to the most recent technology and innovations in the field of vascular surgery. I take that experience with me when I see patients in private hospitals.
Dr Altaf believes that patients can find excellent medical care in both the public and private systems here in Australia and that you deserve the best level of care no matter which system you fall under.
