About me

I am a Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead. I graduated from Newcastle University Medical School in 2006 and completed core and specialist surgical training in the Northern Deanery, rotating around largest Breast Screening Units in the North East of England. I gained a wealth of clinical experience in oncoplastic breast surgery during my training, . More recently, I was the first surgeon in the United Kingdom to introduce Radiofrequency Identification Tags, which are radiation-free, to localise breast tumours. I present internationally on this subject. I believe in offering patients breast conservation surgery whenever possible and regularly use local Flap Volume Replacement and Breast Reduction techniques to allow patients to avoid mastectomy . When mastectomy is indicated, I will always discuss breast reconstruction options. I have a passion for Education and Training and a keen interest in Surgical Research.
