Lana Ilsar

Physiotherapist, specialising in Paediatric Physiotherapy

After qualifying with a Bachelors Degree in Physiotherapy from Curtin University in Western Australia in 1994, Lana completed an internship at the Prince of Wales and former Prince Henry Hospitals. She then joined the Sydney Children’s Hospital (SCH) Physiotherapy Department in 1997, gaining experience in many clinical areas of paediatric physiotherapy including teaching undergraduate physiotherapy students.

In 2005, she attained a personal re-grading in Orthopaedics in recognition of her expertise as a clinical consultant for the physiotherapy management of infants, children and young people with specialised orthopaedic conditions. During her time at SCH, she travelled to the Island Kingdom of Tonga as part of a multidisciplinary team and was a co investigator in a scoliosis research project. In 2013 she began working in private practice seeing paediatric patients in the community.

Lana is passionate about caring for kids and has the skills required to assess, motivate and care for children. As a paediatric physiotherapist, Lana believes it is important to work closely with those who care for children including families, teachers, doctors and other health professionals.

In her spare time Lana is a busy mum of three and enjoys walking and spending time with her family and friends.
