MBCHB, FRACS (Vascular)
Miss Balanathan graduated from the University of Otago in 1999 and underwent surgical training in Queensland and Victoria. She has attained Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in Vascular Surgery in 2011 and was awarded the AVT travelling fellowship in endovascular surgery with the prestigious Angiology Group in Leipzig, Germany.
Sharmila has public hospital appointments at The Alfred Hospital, Box Hill Hospital and Austin Hospital where she has developed wide-ranging skills in complex vascular surgery, renal transplantation, trauma surgery and renal access surgery. She splits her time between her private and public practice, as she is dedicated to public service and training the next generation of surgeons, as well as philanthropic foreign aid work.
Sharmila has a special interest in minimally invasive endovenous treatment of varicose veins. There has been significant advances in the latest technology for the treatment of varicose veins, which greatly improves patient outcomes by reducing pain, swelling, bruising, operative time and other more serious consequences of varicose vein surgery. Sharmila also treats spider/surface veins using injection sclerotherapy, which is conducted in our rooms on an outpatient basis.

Jason initially obtained his Bachelor of Science in 1984 and then completed examinations in the Diploma of Medical Ultrasound (Vascular) in Australia and as a Registered Vascular Technologist in the United States. In 2004, Jason completed his PhD at RMIT University entitled The Aetiology of Varicose Veins, which identified a previously unreported pattern of varicose veins as well as establishing the prevalence of several less recognised causes of venous disease. Jason currently maintains research interests through Box Hill Hospital, the Alfred Hospital, RMIT and Monash Universities.
Jason began his career in Vascular Ultrasound in 1985. From 1989 to1997, he was the Director of the Vascular Laboratory at the Alfred Hospital, Melbourne. In 1997, he founded Vascular Imaging Services, a private diagnostic ultrasound service, which operates at a number of sites throughout Melbourne. Jason is currently the Director of Vascular Imaging Services.
Jason presents regularly at national and international meetings and has published a number of papers. Since 1989, he has conducted numerous training courses in Vascular Ultrasound with attendees from Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and the Middle East.
Jason’s wealth of knowledge as well as his passion and enthusiasm for research and education are reflected in his highly regarded presentations. Since 2000, Jason has been a lecturer and tutor with the Canberra School of Sonography and the Australian School of Medical Imaging, providing comprehensive training in Vascular Ultrasound in a clinical environment.
