Professional profile

I graduated from Imperial College School of Medicine at St Marys in 1998 and completed my basic surgical training in London. Ithen spent two years as a clinical research fellow at Imperial College London investigating the function of immune cells in lymph nodes draining breast cancer. Following on from my research, I continued my training as a general surgeon under the auspices of the London Deanery before sub-specialising in breast and oncoplastic surgery.

As a surgeon, I am trained in breast reconstruction and advanced breast conservation. I also have an interest in benign breast disease including breast pain.

In 2009, I was awarded the National Breast Oncoplastic Fellowship in Manchester. Prior to my current appointment, I spent six months as a locum breast and oncoplastic consultant at the Royal Marsden Hospital. As a surgical oncologist, I continue to maintain an active research interest in the immunology of breast cancer, as well as the impact of diet and exercise in breast cancer recurrence. I am also actively investigating new imaging techniques to identify lymph node involvement in breast cancer patients and regularly lecture at the Royal College of Surgeons.
