"I enjoy working at Spire Parkway Hospital because of the friendly atmosphere and excellent support for patients."

Specialises in

I am an experienced breast surgeon with a proven track record in providing patient-centered breast service since 2004. I have experience of undertaking one-stop, follow-up, results and teaching breast clinics. I was nominated by patients for the Trust “Excellence in Clinical Care Award”.

I specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. I am highly experienced in carrying out procedures such as lumpectomy, mastectomy, implant-based breast reconstruction with dermal flaps and ADMs, therapeutic mammoplasty, Crescent, LICAP and rotational flaps for breast conserving surgery, fat grafting and nipple reconstruction.

I have performed more than 1,000 breast operations including mastectomy, lumpectomy, sentinel node biopsy, axillary clearance and partial and full breast reconstruction based on implants. Since 2004, I perform an average of 30 detected breast cancer operations each year.

In addition to my clinical commitment, I am proud to serve as an honorary professor at Aston University, Birmingham. I lead a very productive research group of doctors, scientists and healthcare professionals.

I am a recognised course director and trainer for the Royal College of Surgeons of England. I have been teaching on the trainer course and training in clinical environment course for more than five years.
