About me

Professor Andrew Baildam trained in Surgical Oncology and then additionally breast plastic and reconstructive surgery before appointment as Consultant Surgeon and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Surgical Oncology at The Christie Hospital in Manchester UK. Subsequently he was appointed to St Bartholomew's Hospital in London as the Professor of Breast and Oncoplastic Surgery to the University of London. During his training he took two years in London and Manchester to research into the molecular biology of breast cancer, leading to a Doctoral Thesis. With a keen interest in the care of patients with genetic breast cancer and oncoplastic breast surgery, he has over 180 peer reviewed publications, abstracts and chapters, and has innovated a number of approaches to breast cancer surgery. He has also held several positions including being the past President of BASO-The Association of Cancer Surgery and the Chair of Royal College of Surgeons of England Cancer Surgery Committee. Of note, he set up the cross specialty breast surgery oncoplastic fellowships in the UK, leading to a better-structured oncoplastic programme for surgical trainees.

He is enthusiastic and passionate both for the highest quality care for patients, and for inspiration of trainees, and has a high tertiary referral surgical practice in Manchester and London. He teaches and lectures widely and spends off-work time climbing mountains and enjoying music and art.
