Here at PhysioActive we are pleased to announce the addition of Tamara Gerdis (Physiotherapist B.Sc, Women’s Health) to our dedicated Women’s Health team.
Tamara graduated with a Bachelor of Science Physiotherapy Degree from the University of Cape Town, South Africa, in 1999. After working as a general physiotherapist for the NHS in London for over 3 years, Tamara began her specialisation in women’s health physiotherapy when she moved to Sydney, Australia in 2004.
She began working at The Royal Hospital for Women, which is a specialist mother and baby teaching hospital with 4000 births per year. There, Tamara worked on the postnatal, antenatal, gynaecology, oncology wards and the outpatient department.
After moving to Singapore with her husband and 2 young children at the end of 2011, Tamara furthered her studies by completing her Graduate Certificate in Continence and Women’s Health Physiotherapy through the Curtin University in Perth, Australia.
This has given Tamara a unique set of skills, specific to women’s health and continence conditions. Tamara is registered with the physiotherapy councils in Australia, the UK, South Africa and Singapore.
Tamara enjoys, cooking, reading, and spending time with her family.
Stay tuned for Tamara’s valuable contributions to our blog, starting off with an informative post on the topic of ‘Returning To Sexual Intercourse After Pregnancy & Birth‘.
