I am an experienced breast surgeon looking after more than 100 screen-detected and symptomatic cancers in a year. I submit the data of my clinical practice for regular audits by the NHS BSP (Breast Screening Programme), Sloane project and BCCOM project.
I work with a highly experienced theatre team and our patients benefit from this experience, skill and team work as nearly 80% of all breast cancer surgery is done as a day case. I have strong working relations with the Genetic Unit in Birmingham and offer a full complement of risk-reducing measures.
One of my specialist interests is to look after women at high risk of breast cancer after the treatment of Lymphoma with mantle radiotherapy.
Areas of interest
• Inflammatory breast cancer,
• Early detection of breast cancer
• sentinel node biopsy
• Skin-sparing mastectomy
• Breast reconstruction
• Prevention of breast cancer
• Management of women at high risk of breast cancer
• The management of benign conditions including breast cysts, mastalgia and fibroadenomas.

I strongly believe that clinical research is imperative to improving the management of patients with breast disease.
I have been involved in recruiting patients for national and international clinical trials.
I am particularly interested in breast cancer and life style research.
I enjoy reading and am fan of books by Alexandar McCall Smith. I enjoy golfing and Yoga.
