Immediate and delayed breast reconstruction in association with mastectomy, or partial reconstruction following cosmetically unfavourable breast conserving surgery, can be a complex matter.
Simon's particular interests lie in improving the cosmetic outcome of oncological breast surgery. Methods to achieve this include partial and total breast reconstruction, novel techniques such as therapeutic mammoplasty (breast reduction surgery for breast cancer treatment) etc.
Whilst Simon performs most of these techniques himself, he also has a close working relationship with the microvascular plastic surgeons at St Andrew's, Broomfield, which allows a full range of techniques to be offered to patients, dependant on choice / suitability. This close multidisciplinary team allows a unique opportunity for patients to be offered the latest most advanced techniques if suitable.
