Mr Nakul G Patel
Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgeon
BSc (Hons), MBBS, FRCS(Plast)
"My aspiration is to provide care at the highest level of quality possible in an atmosphere of genuine care and kindness, and become a positive source of influence for patients, families, my profession and the community."
I am a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at the Leicester Royal Infirmary Hospital and treat both adults and children. I am an integral part of the plastic surgery, breast reconstruction and skin cancer teams. In addition to my reconstructive and microsurgery expertise, I have developed a special interest in cosmetic surgery of the breast (including breast enlargement), abdomen, body and face.
My desire for plastic surgery started while at medical school at St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry. I have had world-class training in plastic surgery in the UK and abroad. During this time, I have completed six prestigious fellowships including cosmetic surgery, laser, skin cancer, breast reconstruction and microsurgery. I have had the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the most distinguished surgeons in their respective fields.
I am passionate about innovation in the medical field and being at the forefront of new techniques, materials and technologies that improve patient care. My enthusiasm has led me to be the Co-Lead for Innovation for the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS). I am also one of a few nationally selected NHS Clinical Entrepreneurs with NHS England. I have gained numerous prizes for research papers and innovations and have been appointed as a Lecturer at the University of Manitoba. At present, I am in the process of inventing new surgical instruments that will help improve outcomes.
I am the author of two medical textbooks, one of which has been translated into Cantonese with Radcliffe and Blackwell Publishing Ltd. I am currently writing a textbook, ‘Core Surgical Procedures at a Glance: Plastic Surgery’, to help train junior plastic surgeons. In addition, I have written three book chapters, six educational surgical videos and contributed to three surgical apps. I have also written over 30 peer reviewed papers and presented at over 20 national and international conferences.
The keystone of my practice is patient safety. I strive to ensure that best practice is followed in every procedure that I undertake. I have designed proformas and employed appropriate techniques to ensure better patient care. I combine cosmetic and reconstructive surgical techniques to get the best possible results for my patients.
