General surgery: Endocrine surgery, Laparoscopic surgery, Minimal access surgery, Parathyroid disease, Thyroid disease
I am a consultant breast and general surgeon at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood, Essex and Spire London East Hospital in Redbridge, Essex.
I specialise in the treatment of all breast-related and endocrine surgical problems (thyroid, parathyroid and laparoscopic adrenal surgery) besides keyhole hernia and gallbladder surgery. I also train junior surgeons in breast surgery, breast plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as keyhole surgery.
As a breast onco-plastic specialist, I am trained in both breast cancer surgery and breast plastic surgery. This means I am able to combine plastic surgical expertise with breast surgery experience to produce both an oncologically safe and cosmetic result. Even minor breast surgical procedures are carried out through specific incisions along cosmetic principles. When tissue is removed from the breast, special techniques are used to reduce the resulting volume and shape deficit. I also undertake breast cancer risk reducing surgery. I am assisted by a dedicated and experienced multidisciplinary team of breast care specialist nurses, radiologists, pathologists, oncologists, anaesthetists and administrative assistants.
For cosmetic breast procedures I will give you advice from both cosmetic as well as future breast cancer risk/safety viewpoints. Having trained with plastic surgeons I have excellent links with these other specialists and work closely with them to bring you the best results. I will use my considerable experience and expertise to assess your problems and give you enough time during consultations to address your anxieties.
Currently, I am the lead surgeon for breast services at King George Hospital, Ilford and Queen's Hospital, Romford, both in Essex.
I trained within the prestigious National Oncoplastic Breast Fellowship and received my higher surgical training in the North East Thames Surgical Rotation. In addition, I received specialist endocrine surgical training at Hammersmith Hospital, west London.
