Breast Surgery

I am a Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon who qualified in 2001 from Newcastle Medical School with Distinction. I  have completed the majority of my surgical training in the North-East but I have also trained for 12 months in Adelaide, Australia and completed a 12 month nationally appointed TIG Oncoplastic Breast Fellowship in Sheffield in 2011-12. I am a full-time NHS consultant at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle upon Tyne commencing in September 2013. I currently treat in excess of 175 breast cancers per year (UK average ~ 100-110/year). The RVI breast unit is the largest breast screening and training unit in the North East. I am one of the appointed trainers for regional trainees and national fellows, and the Course Director for the National Oncoplastic Fellowship (TIG) workshop held in Newcastle each year. I am the Clinical Governance Lead and Educational Lead for the RVI Breast unit and I play an active role in clinical research as Primary Investigator (PI) for 4 nationally funded (NIHR) clinical trials. I teach at both regional and national courses and I am an Assigned Educational Supervisor to trainees at all levels. I give invited lectures to local GP's to help improve patient care in primary care.

I strive to deliver excellent patient care and the highest levels of patient satisfaction possible. I have provided some of my patient feedback to demonstrate this.

My special interest is the management of patients with breast cancer. This includes partial and full breast reconstruction (immediate and delayed). I frequently perform procedures to improve breast symmetry including breast reduction, mastopexy (uplift), breast augmentation, nipple reconstruction and lipomodelling as part of my routine NHS practice. I also perform these procedures privately for patients who want to improve their body image and quality of life.
