Dipthi is a highly experienced clinician of Active’s Mars Clinic teams.

Her many years of broad experience and her person-centred approach, contribute to Dipthi’s ability to help her patients feel comfortable, committed and ready to achieve positive results. Dipthi has advanced training in Child and Adolescent Continence issues, and in her leadership role at Active, she expertly mentors our team in the management of children’s and teen continence issues.  

Dipthi also has advanced training in women’s health. She has a keen interest in providing physiotherapy to support women, throughout the lifespan, to navigate their injuries, concerns, or changes in their body. With her warm and empathetic nature, Dipthi is a strong supporter of services for women during breast cancer treatment – you may have seen her as the ‘face’ of the Breast Cancer Network of Australia’s Pink Buns fundraiser campaign in 2021.  

Dipthi has been part of our Active Rehab community for many years and works with a wide range of surgeons and multidisciplinary health teams connected to our hospital and outpatient practices. Over time, she has become experienced in almost every clinical area at Active!  

When not working, you will find Dipthi spending time with her family and friends.
