About me

Mr Rajiv V Dave is a Consultant Oncoplastic Breast and Endocrine Surgeon, based at the Nightingale & Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Centre, at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, which is recognised as one of the largest Breast symptomatic and screening units in the UK. This is a recognised centre of excellence, providing complex oncoplastic breast surgery and leading on new technology. His specialist surgical training, which spanned over 10 years, includes a Research Fellowship awarded the Patey Prize by the Society of Academic and Research Surgery, a prestigious and ultra-competitive TIG Oncoplastic Fellowship in Manchester, and an International Fellowship in Breast, Endocrine and Melanoma in Melbourne, Australia.
He is trained in Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery and is part of a busy Endocrine service at Wythenshawe Hospital and is a member of the Greater Manchester & Cheshire Thyroid Cancer Team. He has a particular interest in thyroidectomy for Graves disease and in the surgical management of primary hyperparathyroidism.

He has a strong academic interest and portfolio, and a good understanding of translational 'bench to bedside' research, and has experience in clinical writing both in high impact-factor peer-reviewed journals and lay-terminology patient information. He has successfully led and delivered large national collaborative studies which have informed and impacted clinical practice, and has been awarded prestigious research grants. He serves in several regional and national clinical leadership roles, including the Association of Breast Surgery Academic and Research Committee, and as steering member of the UK/Kenya Heath care Alliance.

He is a dedicated team-worker with excellent communication skills and has the drive and enthusiasm to deliver high quality services to his patients, which is reflected in his patients' feedback. He regularly participates in continued professional development to ensure he is up-to-date on current management trends and applies this to his practice, along with the ability to comprehensibly convey this information to his patients.

Mr Dave is a an oil-painter and photographer, and strives to maintain that artistry in his surgical practice.
