About me

Mr Wael Ismail is a Consultant Breast Surgeon whose private practice is based primarily at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood, Essex.

Private breast surgery
Wael Ismail operates on more than 200 women with breast cancer every year He aims to deliver high quality breast care and excellent results to both his private and NHS patients. His breast service is built on a strong multidisciplinary ethos and follows all guidelines and evidence-based protocols for breast cancer treatment.

Mr Ismail is also an accredited breast screening surgeon and operates on women who have no breast symptoms and whose cancer has been detected during routine mammography screening. For these patients, Mr Ismail uses the wire localisation technique to confirm diagnosis and plan treatment.

In addition to the wire localisation technique, Mr Ismail offers the following surgical treatments at Spire Hartswood Hospital :

wide local excision of breast lump
skin sparing mastectomy
mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction performed in conjunction with a specialist plastic surgeon. Reconstruction options include implants, implant plus latissimus dorsi (LD) flap, and deep inferior epigastric pedicle (DIEP) flap as appropriate.
blue dye sentinel node biopsy (SLNB) to determine spread of cancer to the lymph system, with minimum lymph node removal
axillary clearance of lymph nodes

Patients with breast symptoms who come to Mr Ismail's Monday evening private breast clinic can normally have investigations (mammography, breast ultrasound, fine needle aspiration and/or core biopsy) on the same evening.

Spire Hartswood Hospital’s specialist breast care nurses support all private breast patients and treatment planning is done by a multi-disciplinary team including surgeon, oncologist, radiologist and pathologist before and after surgery.
