A one stop Breast Clinic
Peter and Sue Jones are a unique husband and wife partnership of highly experienced specialist Breast Surgeons who established a dedicated Breast Clinic in Maidstone more than 15 years ago.
They work closely together to provide immediate access to their one-stop Breast Clinic privately, as well as in the NHS and specialise in all aspects of breast surgery. Breast conservation (lumpectomy as opposed to mastectomy) is their aim whenever possible. They believe there are still too many unnecessary mastectomies being performed. They have shown that as long as a carefully performed lumpectomy is combined with high quality radiotherapy - such as is available at the Kent Oncology Centre in Maidstone - then very low recurrence rates can be achieved.
Diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer involves a whole team of breast specialists from different disciplines. Peter and Sue Jones are fortunate to work with an amazingly talented and dedicated team. Ali Sever and Pippa Mills are Radiologists that both specialise in breast imaging and are truly expert at reading mammograms and performing breast ultrasound.
Peter and Sue Jones also work with Dr Jenny Weeks, Breast Physician, Fiona Cameron and Anna Matthews, Specialist Breast Care Nurses and many others.
A comprehensive resource for patients providing breast information - breast lump, nipple discharge, breast reconstruction, breast cancer treatment, mastectomy, lymphoedema, breast biopsy and breast cancer, written and maintained by Mr Peter Jones, a breast specialist.
Following the principles of the renowned Shouldice repair (a pure, natural tissue repair, which virtually eliminates complications or repeat hernias), the disadvantages of mesh repairs and the potential problems of keyhole surgery are avoided. After hernia surgery using the Shouldice method, the majority of patients recover rapidly and have minimal post-operative pain.
