Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Duraisamy Ravichandran at Spire include:
My main clinical interests are in breast cancer, thyroid disorders and hernias and my higher surgical training was in Wessex and East Anglia where I trained in breast and endocrine surgery at Norfolk & Norwich and Addenbrooke’s Teaching Hospitals. My PhD was in surgical oncology (Southampton University Surgical Unit). I was appointed as a Consultant Surgeon in 2001. Most of my elective work is with breast cancer, thyroid lumps including thyroid cancer, parathyroid disorders and hernias, and I do emergency on-call for my NHS hospital for all general surgical emergencies.
I am active clinical researcher in breast cancer with a large number of published papers in peer-reviewed journals and national and international presentations. I also trains surgeons, teaches medical students from UCL and is an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons as well as a Final MBBS examiner. I am presently the lead clinician for breast cancer for the Mount Vernon Cancer Network.
I see patients with breast complaints, thyroid lumps, hernias and other lumps in his clinic at Spire. I offer a rapid access service (Tuesday PM clinic) for breast and thyroid problems where an experienced consultant radiologist is also present in the clinic to do the relevant radiological investigations and any needle tests that may be necessary during the same visit. I offer open repair for umbilical, inguinal, femoral and incisional hernias. I also see patients with lymphadenopathy and other “lumps and bumps”.
