Mr Sarfraz trained as a general surgeon with particular emphasis on breast, endocrine, open hernia and gallbladder surgery for 13 years to achieve consultant status in his home country before relocating to the UK for further training in the year 2000.
Mr Sarfraz spent over 7 years in training in the Mersey region achieving proficiency in General Surgery including laparoscopic cholecystectomies and the last three years of his training were at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital to develop sub-specialist skills in breast and endocrine surgery.
Although Mr Sarfraz has a wide-ranging and extensive experience in general surgery, his main interests are to provide a resectional and oncoplastic breast surgery service. He performs image guided surgery (wire / radioactive localisation) as a part of breast screening. Mr Sarfraz is trained in sentinel lymph node biopsies for staging breast cancer and can offer primary and secondary breast reconstruction as well as symmetrization surgery. He performs thyroid and parathyroid surgery.
Mr Sarfraz has a keen interest in surgical teaching and training and is a member of faculty on all the major surgical courses for the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
He is currently the Lead Cancer Clinician for Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHSFT.

I live in Warrington with my wife and two sons. I enjoy walks in the hills in the Lake District and North Wales (nostalgia from my 11 years as an officer in the army). I swim and play squash regularly. I am a motorbike enthusiast and ride my two bikes on weekends.
