Background Information 
Professional profile:

I have been a Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon in Leicester since October 2014, working with the multidisciplinary team locally to ensure the best cancer outcomes for my breast cancer patients. I offer a full range of modern surgical techniques to optimise their cosmetic outcomes, including implant-based breast reconstruction and working with my plastic surgical colleagues for free-flap reconstructions. 

I specialise in breast surgery including both cancer surgery; surgery for benign breast conditions and cosmetic breast surgery.

I carry out around 200 operations annually, the majority of which are for breast cancer. I treat approximately 130 women with breast cancer each year with about 1 in every 5 women requiring a mastectomy choosing to have an immediate implant-based reconstruction.

Personal profile:

I enjoy cycling and motorcycling and, since moving to live and work in Leicestershire, I have been able to explore much of the area on two wheels.
