About Dr Anil Sharma

Anil is a Specialist Surgical Gynaecologist and in Auckland. His expertise lies in the management of women's health problems.


Anil was brought up in London and educated in England. After his medical and surgical degrees he specialised in OBGYN with Memberships and then Fellowships of the UK and Aus / NZ Royal Colleges of OBGYN.

He moved to NZ permanently in 2001. 

Anil thoroughly enjoys meeting and interacting with people. He is always keen to involve patients in their healthcare. He has focussed on Gynaecology for many years and sadly no longer undertakes maternity care. In his career, he has helped mums-to-be deliver over 5000 babies.

He has a keen interest in ethical practise and respect for patient's rights. He undertook a diploma in medical law at Cardiff University and is often asked to provide medico-legal opinions. He updates his practice and undertakes the Continuing Medical Education Programme (and certification) of the Royal ANZ College. He also gives postgraduate lectures to family doctors and nurses about Gynaecology and writes frequently for medical magazines and a research journal. Anil also enjoyed being the Women's Health Expert for TVNZ Good Morning and has written widely for a number of popular magazines.

Anil was honoured to be made a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (London) in 2008. This is conferred after sustained contributions to the vocation and the maintenance of high standards of practice.

He is married to a GP, Rachel and has three teenage daughters and a much-loved miniature Schnauzer Luis . His spare time is spent with the family and in the great NZ outdoors. He loves comedy, classic cars, modern design and architecture.

He is delighted that the practice is managed by Anne Whineray who is also a trained nurse and adept at all aspects of gynae health care management. We believe in kind empathic care. Anil's life experiences and training in medical practice have included Vascular Surgery, Urology, Renal medicine, Neurology, Oncology, Accident and Emergency, Elder Health, Orthopaedic Surgery, Psychiatry and of course the vast majority of it in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.  

Anil has considerable surgical experience (30 years and counting) and performs a wide range of procedures having undertaken a traditional (and long) training programme in the UK (Leicester, Sheffield, Bath, Bristol, Poole, London, Taunton, Wrexham, Newport, Cardiff) and NZ (Wellington, Hamilton, Palmerston North).

  • If you're looking for a gynecologist who'll listen and give you options and know about Endometriosis, who'll lay out a plan etc this is the Gynae for you.

    Great at communicating, if surgery is the option you want to take then this is your Dr, will call on other specialists if needed to get a thorough tougher surgeries. I was grateful to have 3 surgeons for my 2nd Op as it was a lot more complicated this time round.

    Easy to get answers if you're unsure of anything Anne is only an email or phone call away.

    Highly reccomended helped me get diagnosed with Endometriosis, 2 surgeries later and I feel 100% no pain which is amazing and i know if it does come back Anil an Anne are only phone call / email away but hopefully I'm good for awhile 😊 😀

  • Dr Anil Sharma is a very professional, warm and charming person. He gives clear concise information about procedures which is empowering. I would highly recommend him as a gynaecologist. Anne, his practice nurse/ manager is also a very professional and delightful person. Thank you for your care., Allison

  • Dr Anil Sharma is incredible, and he is a wonderful surgeon. I really appreciate how he took his time to explain about advanced endometriosis and the treatment options. With his wealth of Knowledge and information, I immediately felt at ease – and felt assured in my receiving expert medical care from him. In addition, Anne his nurse is always very helpful and an email away. I had such a fear about going through this whole procedure as I have heard of many positive and negative feedback from others. Even, through my own experience I went to Dr Shrama for second opinion as my first surgeon delayed my surgery and she recommended that I take zoladex injection in the interim. I felt that it was a blessing in disguise that my surgery was postponed by my first surgeon or else I would have never found Dr Shrama. He discussed my condition with another specialist- Dr Rishi Ram who was amazing as well. Dr Sharma and Anne directed me right from pre-surgery, to recovery either at the hospital or at home. I am so glad I chose Dr Anil Sharma and his co surgeon Dr Rishi Ram and I would highly recommend to anyone.

  • Do you go off your gut feeling? I do, and I had to push my way through the health system to get answers and failed along the way. Until I met Dr. Sharma and all my issues made sense. A very clear, focused, caring Doctor/ Surgeon that listens and explains very clearly on what is the best outcome is for your health issue. I had a hysterectomy, I'm 50 and without his skill and experience I would have never recovered from my surgery so quickly. From pre-surgery, recovery, home recovery to complete recovery I was guided by Dr. Sharma and his nurse to allow for the best result possible from a surgery that I feared would change my life forever. Well it did and for the better! I'm 6 weeks post surgery back to my active life, feeling well and happy. I have much to be grateful for and so will you. Oh, and even though scars are part of your life story you may be concerned of those, Dr. Sharma considers those too and they are tiny! I know and have seen other post surgery clients who used someone else and the scars are very different to mine, much worse. A bit silly to focus on something so minute since good health means everything no matter the scar it leaves behind. Thank you Dr. Sharma

  • Very happy with the level of care and service from Dr Anil Sharma and his Practice Manager Anne. Anil is very understanding and knowledgeable and puts you at ease the moment you walk in. His personal level of care for you pre, during and post Surgery is exceptional. Would not hesitate to recommend Anil as a Gynaecologist and Surgeon.

  • I have really enjoyed every meeting with Dr Anil Sharma. He is so charismatic. Such a nice feeling to know your problems are being handled in such a professional way. He is very caring, really funny, sympathetic, interesting and also interested in what you have to say. I am so lucky to have him alongside me when I have any gynecology problems. Right from the time you enter his rooms, at reception you are taken great care of by Anne - his lovely receptionist - and then usually very little wait time, you are then safe and secure in the knowledge you are getting the best care and attention you could possibly ask for.

  • What a blessing it was to have Dr Sharma as my surgeon recently for pelvic prolapse repair surgery. He explained the procedure very clearly, and though I was nervous and apprehensive. with his caring nature and humour, plus knowledge and experience, I felt safe in his hands. Thank you Anil, you are number One!!

  • Dr Anil Sharma and Ann are an amazing team! (apologies for writing this post late - was meant to write this 7 months ago after my surgery!)

    I received the best care and was very impressed with Dr Anil's professionalism and attitude. It makes a huge difference when someone like him believes you have endometriosis when other doctors don't. Because of his mannerisms and extensive knowledge, he has inspired me to learn more about women's health and take my education to a much higher level. Big massive thank you! God bless xx
