Mr Richard Sainsbury
MB BS, MD, FRCS
I qualified in 1976 and trained in Newcastle Upon Tyne. I became a Consultant in 1988. My first post was in the only district hospital which was site specialised and I developed the breast team there. I moved to University College London in 2000 and headed the breast team until 2007.
My interests include sentinel node biopsy (I taught in the national training scheme) and reconstruction. I perform all aspects of breast surgery including augmentations (enlargements), mastopexy and reductions.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Richard Sainsbury at Spire include:
Breast care and surgery
Spire Southampton Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
