- Breast surgery
I am a consultant breast oncoplastic surgeon with over eight years of experience in specialised breast oncoplastic units in England.
I specialise in rapid assessment and treatment of symptomatic and screen-detected carcinoma of the breast, as well as all benign breast conditions. I am passionate about preservation and restoration of the breast during and after cancer treatment and offer various oncoplastic and reconstructive options. I utilise reshaping, reduction and uplift techniques to improve symmetry if the opposite breast needs adjustment. I also provide other procedures like fat transfer/lipomodelling to improve the appearance of the breast after lumpectomy or reconstruction.
I take keen interest in the assessment and management of women with high risk family history or gene mutation carriers (e.g. BRCA genes) who are at increased risk of developing breast cancer.
My training in breast surgery includes advanced Oncoplastic Fellowships in The Royal Marsden Hospital and the University Hospital of North Midlands, and I hold a MS degree in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery from the University of East Anglia.
