Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Haitham Khalil at Spire include:
I attended Cairo University Medical School from 1995, spending 9 years obtaining both a Masters (MSc) and Medical Doctorate (MD) degree. I am the spent over three years training for my fellowship at the internationally recognised unit for breast, plasric and reconstruction at Kings College and St Thomas’ Hospital, London, including a year of micro-vasular surgery senior fellowship.
Shortly after, he started his oncoplastic career in the National Cancer Institute (NCI Cairo University) and the Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Department of Cairo University Hospitals, before being appointed as a Consultant Reconstructive Surgeon at Heart of England NHS Foundation trust in 2009. It was here he introduced the microvascular surgery for breast reconstruction. He was also the first to set up and perform the first free micro-vascular surgical procedure for breast reconstruction in 2015 at Spire Parkway.
I am the Audit and Reconstructive surgery clinical service lead at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust. The unit serves the breast unit which treats on average 650 breast cancers annually, with me performing an average of 300 breast oncoplastic related procedures annually. He is one of the very few reconstructive surgeons in the UK with a surgical oncological background which adds to the depth in consideration of the oncological aspects during reconstruction discussions to tailor them to the patient's needs.
In 2014 as part of his continuous educational responsibilities he obtained an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at University of Birmingham. He is a regular speaker in national and international meetings for breast, thoracic, abdomen and perineal reconstruction including American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Society of Cardiothoracic Surgery in Great Britain and Ireland (SCTS), Mediterranean Society of pelvic floor disorder (MSPFD).
He regularly teaches on several international instructional courses in Middle Eastern countries especially micro-vascular breast reconstruction procedures. He is an author for 40 publications in high profile journals for Plastic and Reconstructive surgery.
In 2016, he was part of a team that introduced the first custom built 3D printed titanium implant for sternal reconstruction. This procedure was the first of its kind in the UK and the second in the world so it’s going to be fascinating to see how this technology develops.
10 per cent of his work is directed to provision of chest wall reconstruction for thoracic sarcoma, isolated advanced breast cancer patients working closely with the thoracic surgeons as part of a multidisciplinary team. I also provide reconstructive cover for the perineum and lower abdominal defects reconstruction as part of multidisciplinary colorectal surgery team.
