He is passionate about achieving the best possible outcomes for his patients whilst maintaining that important human touch.

He provides modern breast cancer surgical treatments and is dual trained in general and plastic surgical techniques. These enable him to strive to achieve the very best cancer outcomes whilst optimising the cosmetic results following treatment. He provides a full range of breast cancer surgical treatments which are outlined on his personal website (see below).

Clinical Interests

Simon's interests lie exclusively within the field of Oncoplastic Breast Surgery. The oncoplastic approach is the new gold standard in breast cancer surgery and ensures a unique dual focus on optimising aesthetic/cosmetic outcomes following breast cancer surgery whilst maintaining the highest levels of cancer care.

It encompasses all aspects of benign, malignant and aesthetic breast surgery and requires surgical expertise in therapeutic, reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery techniques.
