A determined path to a surgical career
Dr Samantha Pillay graduated from the University of Adelaide Medical School in 1992 to become the first female urological surgeon in South Australia. From a very early age a physical condition prevented Dr Pillay from being able to walk. But it’s made her all the more determined to pursue her dreams and to help others in need. Dr Pillay is the founder of Continence Matters, an online resource to educate the medical professional and the general public on bladder and continence issues. She’s also an accomplished public speaker, an entrepreneur, and author of ‘The No Recipe Cookbook’ and ‘When I’m a Surgeon’.
