Dr Nidhi Garg (MBBS(Hons), PhD, FRACP) is a specialist Neurologist and Clinical Neurophysiologist and Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney. She has expertise in the field of neuromuscular medicine, focused on immune-mediated disorders affecting peripheral nerves. She recently completed a PhD at the Brain and Mind Centre and the University of Sydney on the neurophysiological and immunological biomarkers in immune-mediated neuropathies. She is also an expert in the use of injectable therapies for neurological disease including for the treatment of chronic migraine and hyperhidrosis.

Dr Matt Silsby

Dr Matt Silsby

Dr Matt Silsby (BMedSc, MBBS(Hons), FRACP, JP) is a specialist Neurologist and Clinical Neurophysiologist and is a locum Staff Specialist Neurologist and Director of Neurophysiology at Westmead Hospital. His expertise includes the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders and movement disorders. He is a PhD candidate at the University of Sydney and Westmead Hospital evaluating movement abnormalities, such as tremor and imbalance, associated with neuropathies. He also coordinates the Unit of Study “Applied Clinical Neurophysiology” in the Masters of Medicine Program at the University of Sydney. This research and teaching involves thorough clinical assessments and advanced neurophysiological techniques, which translate in to his clinical practice. He also has expertise in the use of injectable therapies for the treatment of neurological disorders including chronic migraine, abnormal movements such as tremor and dystonia, spasticity, and hyperhidrosis.

Dr Lysandra Katelaris

Dr Lysandra Katelaris

Dr Lysandra Katelaris (MBBS(Hons) BSc(Med), FRACP) is an adult Neurologist and diagnostic Neurophysiologist with special interests in headache, neuromuscular disorders, peripheral nerve disorders, epilepsy and Neuroimmunology, including Multiple Sclerosis. She completed her Neurology Fellowship in Neurophysiology and Neuroimmunology at Westmead Hospital with a particular focus on the diagnostic approach to neuromuscular conditions including neuropathies and motor neurone disease. She is also trained in the use of injectable therapies for a variety of conditions including chronic migraine, hyperhidrosis and spasticity.

Dr James Triplett

Dr TriplettDr James Triplett is a locum staff specialist neurologist and neurophysiologist at Concord hospital with a particular interest in neuromuscular disorders and peripheral nerve disorders. He graduated from Newcastle University with a Bachelor of Medicine (Distinction) in 2010 and has also completed a Bachelor of Medical Science and Masters of Medicine both through the University of Sydney.

Dr Triplett undertook his internship, residency and neurology core training in Perth, Western Australia, and then completed a neuromuscular and neuro-immunology fellowship at Concord hospital in 2017. Between 2018 and 2020 he was selected for and undertook the prestigious Australian and New Zealand Association of Neurologists (ANZAN) fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA, with particular focus on neuromuscular medicine and clinical neurophysiology (nerve conduction studies, EMG and EEG).

Dr Triplett has special interest in multiple sclerosis, genetic and acquired neuromuscular conditions and expertise in complex neurophysiological evaluations and the administration of Botulinum toxin for migraine, spasticity, and tremor. Dr Triplett has published widely and is involved in ongoing research in acquired neuropathies, myasthenia gravis and inflammatory myopathies. He is a co-course co-ordinator for a unit of study at Sydney University in the Masters of Medicine (Clinical Neurophysiology) degree and is widely involved in the education and training of medical students and junior doctors at Concord hospital.

Dr Rajiv Wijesinghe

Dr WijesingheDr Rajiv Wijesinghe is a general neurologist, with expertise in the management of headache, stroke and neuromuscular disorders. He completed his training through Royal Prince Alfred and Concord Hospitals in Sydney. He has received subspeciality training in conducting comprehensive neurophysiological assessments and using injectable therapies for treatment of neurological disorders such as chronic migraine, cervical dystonia and hyperhidrosis.
