Mr Dibyesh Banerjee
Consultant General Surgeon
MBBS, MS, FRCSEd, FRCS (Gen Surg)
I am a senior Consultant Breast and General Surgeon and Hon Senior Lecturer at St George's Hospital Medical School, University of London. I am a member of the Association of Breast Surgeons (ABS) and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine. My main interest lies in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery, which is an established surgical sub-specialty encompassing all aspects of breast surgery – combining the best principles of cancer surgery with the best techniques of breast reconstruction and cosmetics.
I underwent my Specialist training at the Oncoplastic Breast Unit in Winchester and at the Cardiff Breast Unit in Wales. My international experience includes Sentinel Node Biopsy training at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in New York and a Travelling Fellowship at the Winship Cancer Institute and Crawford Long Hospital, Emory University, Atlanta. I have also attended several training courses in the UK and abroad, including a Breast Reconstruction Course at the European Institute of Oncology in Milan and the Jersey Breast Reduction Masterclass.
As a keen surgical trainer, I established the St George's Oncoplastic Breast Surgery Seminar – a biennial training programme aimed at Breast Surgery trainees.
I run the Breast Clinic at St Anthony's on Monday evenings – for assessment and diagnosis of breast problems. Each patient is seen and examined by myself personally and any tests are performed by a senior Consultant Breast Radiologist.
I also perform large numbers of ‘benign’ breast operations each year – including correction of inverted nipples, breast asymmetry (uneven breasts), breast enlargement, breast reduction and breast lift (mastopexy). I'm also a specialist in male breast problems, eg male breast reductions for gynaecomastia. As a General Surgeon I also perform hernia repairs, removal of ‘lumps and bumps’, lymph node biopsy, hidradenitis and other day case procedures.
