I have over 20 years of experience solely dedicated to breast surgery and breast reconstructive surgery. I undertook my specialist training in the UK, Barcelona, Paris and Milan. I am on the GMC Specialist Register for Breast surgery, European Board Certified in Breast Surgery (FEBS), Association of Breast Surgery (ABS), British (BASO) and European Association of Surgical Oncology (ESSO).
I am a keen believer in patient-centred care. I work together with my patients and my team to provide the best care within strict evidenced-based practices. One of the pioneers of sentinel lymph node and Radioguided breast surgery (ROLL) in the UK and Europe.
To date I have performed over 1,000 mastectomy and axillary dissection operations, 1,500 wide local excisions; sentinel lymph node biopsy for breast cancer, hundreds of advanced oncoplastic procedures such as therapeutic mammoplasty, breast reconstructions both immediate and delayed using implants as well as local flaps, cosmetic breast procedures, breast augmentation and breast reductions over my 20-year period in both my NHS and private practice.
I have published numerous peer-reviewed publications in highly respected international medical journals and conducted worldwide presentations in my field of expertise.
