Alishka Sivanath

I was born and brought up in Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal. I attended Durban University of Technology, where I qualified with a bachelor’s degree in Medical Orthotics and Prosthetics in 2017. I worked as an orthotist in my own capacity in 2018 in Durban, before moving to Cape Town to join the Chin and Partners Team in 2019.

My interests are on all aspects of the orthotics and prosthetics field, but I have a special interest in orthotics; custom made and off the shelf and quite recently paediatric care of cranial remoulding therapy. I love being able to help people using non-surgical methods to assist in the rehabilitation of patients. From a young age, I have always been passionate about helping people and looking for opportunities in which I can make a difference to those around me.

I am very family orientated and am enthusiastic about socialising, although when you can’t find me enjoying the outdoors with friends, I’m usually cooped up at home with a good book. I love to cook and take an interest in creative arts. Some of my other hobbies are dancing, binging series, and DIY projects.
