Mr Adrian Ball is an accredited consultant surgeon trained in oncoplastic breast surgery, thyroid and parathyroid surgery, and minimally invasive surgery. He graduated from Cambridge and has held appointments as a lecturer in surgery at The London Hospital and The Royal Marsden Hospital (Institute of Cancer Research).
Mr Ball is a member of the breast faculty at the Royal College of Surgeons of England and teaches there regularly. He also lectures abroad. He has visited the USA and Germany to develop skills in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery and is co-author of a book on breast surgery techniques. He believes that breast surgery should take account of both aesthetic and oncological principles and that a multidisciplinary approach is essential for optimal results. He is part of the Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire (SWISH) Cancer Network.
Mr Ball has a special interest in minimally invasive surgery, which he has practiced since the 1990's. As well as surgery for gallstones, he specializes in minimally invasive hernia repair and uses the extraperitoneal (TEPS) approach recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE).
