Breast

Mr Gerard Lambe leads the Breast service at the Christie.

Our aim is to provide a world class service to patients who are undergoing breast reconstruction following previous treatment for breast cancer or who have decided to proceed with risk reducing surgery in order to lower their life time risk of breast cancer. 

The team includes Mr Lambe, Mr Kosutic, a specialised nurse, psychoncology and complementary therapy services. We also have a dedicated enhanced recovery service in order that patients are able to recover and return to normal life as quickly as possible.  

We perform all methods of reconstruction including complex microsurgical breast reconstruction which has the advantage of being a reconstruction requiring no implants and hence no further surgery. 

Our service has been featured on Sky news and local radio and media.  

The unit is proud of its high success rate but we are constantly looking to improve the service and experience for our patients. We have recently started using an iPad to show images of pre and post reconstruction to our patients and we are also now using a 3D imaging system to allow patients to preview there results and to provide more accurate measurements pre operatively  

For any questions please contact Mr Gerard Lambe or Mr Damir Kosutic, MD PhD FRCS (PLast), Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon.
