Breast cancer surgery in Kent

  • Lumpectomy
  • Mastectomy
  • Immediate and delayed breast reconstruction
  • Nipple reconstruction
  • Nipple tattooing


A world leading centre for sentinel node biopsy

Currently in the UK, the most common way to determine whether or not a breast cancer has spread to the lymph nodes under the arms is to surgically remove several or most of the nodes.  In 60% of women these nodes are subsequently found to be free of cancer cells and the procedure itself is associated with unpleasant side effects such as swelling of the arm (lymphoedema) and pain in the armpit.  More modern techniques such as the injection of radioactive dye to identify the first nodes to which a cancer may spread (sentinel nodes) can only be performed during a breast operation.


Mr and Mrs Jones are at the forefront of a new technique to accurately identify the sentinel nodes preoperatively using a microbubble contrast agent injected directly into the breast.  Targeted fine needle aspiration under ultrasound control can then determine if cancer cells are present in the sentinel nodes, potentially reducing the need for a second operation.
