Tomasz Graja: Consultant Breast, Hernia and General Surgeon in West Dorset
Tomasz Graja is a Consultant Breast and General Surgeon at Dorset County Hospital NHS, Dorchester. Specialising in breast surgery for cancer as well as cosmetic, hernia and general surgery, he consults privately at BMI The Winterbourne Hospital in Dorchester where he provides a high-quality service delivering excellent results to his patients.
Training and experience
Mr Tomasz Graja graduated from Poznan University of Medical Sciences in Poland in 1992 and undertook postgraduate training in France, the United States and the United Kingdom. He was awarded a PhD for his work comparing the quality of life for women following mastectomy versus those treated with breast conserving surgery for breast cancer in 2005, after which he settled in the UK.
Mr Graja’s first specialty is breast surgery. Trained at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, the Royal Marsden Hospital in London and the Moffitt Cancer Centre in Tampa, Florida, he has a particular interest and expertise in breast oncoplastic surgery, employing these techniques where possible to achieve the best possible cosmetic result without compromising the treatment for cancer. He also performs reconstructive breast surgery following mastectomy and cosmetic breast procedures such as breast augmentation, breast reduction and breast uplift.
He consults patients with various benign and malignant breast problems and organises appropriate investigations and treatment if needed.
Mr Graja offers a wide range of surgical techniques for hernia repair under general anaesthetic that allow most of his patients to return home on the same day. In his practice he uses a whole range of techniques involving novel materials. In line with the new developments in hernia surgery he prefers open surgery rather than laparoscopic. The attention is on low tension repair and using non-absorbable composite meshes. He is in favour of self-fixating meshes where suturing is not required. This reduces the risk of chronic pain, while providing long-term reliable repair.
The key principle is to repair hernia in the safest possible way and enable swift recovery.
A hernia can be painful and, for some patients, can significantly limit the ability to work and participate in daily activities and sport. In view of this, Mr Graja is committed to providing hernia surgery as soon as possible. The usual waiting time can be as short as a week or two. Mr Graja discusses in detail post-operative care and how soon the patient is able to return to normal activities. He provides follow-up after surgery to closely monitor recovery.
Mr Graja also provides minor general surgery like excision of lipoma, sebaceous cyst and removal of skin lesions.
