Treatment Team

Breast cancer treatment requires a whole team of health professionals.

I work closely with a team of specialists including pathologists, radiologists, oncologists and plastic surgeons to provide my patients with the best possible care. Many of this team have worked together for more than ten years providing a wealth of shared knowledge and experience.

Surgeon: Trevor Smith

Radiologist: Phil Weeks Ascot Radiology

Pathologist: Claudia Recavarren (DML)

Anaesthetist: Charles Bradfield, Jayesh Patel

Plastic surgeon: Janek Januszkiewicz

Medical oncologist: Vernon Harvey

Radiation oncologist: Benji Benjamin / Maria Pearse

Stress counsellor: John McEwan

Physotherapist: Janie Ogram

The multidisciplinary meeting has evolved as an important tool in providing clear communication and discussion between these different doctors. The meeting is attended by:

  • Pathologist
  • Radiologist
  • Surgeon
  • Medical oncologist
  • Radiation oncologist

It provides an important opportunity to review your case comprehensively and to discuss the benefits and timing of any further treatment. The optimum timing and sequence of treatments varies from case to case. A personalised plan will be formulated for your situation.

This meeting can also be used as a forum to provide a second opinion on treatment options.
