Dr Upasna Pratap (Paz) graduated from the University of Tasmania with First Class Honours in 2006. She completed her training in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, in 2013 becoming a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS).
Following this, she undertook a Fellowship in Rhinology and Anterior Skull Base Surgery specialising in nose & sinus surgery, complex rhinoplasty and trans-nasal surgery into the intracranial cavity in Melbourne. She then completed a second Fellowship in London in Head and Neck Surgery specialising in benign and malignant conditions of the head and neck, including thyroid disease.

Dr Pratap consults in Warragul once a week and operates in both Warragul and Maryvale. Routine ENT procedures such as tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, grommets, nose and sinus surgery and basic head and neck surgery is undertaken here. She has the ability to care for patients in a Metropolitan setting if more complex, multi-disciplinary care is required. This includes the ability to add patients directly on to the waiting list if required.
Dr Pratap herself is originally from the small township of St Marys in Tasmania where she completed her primary and secondary education and hence has an understanding of the rewards and challenges of life in a rural or regional setting.
