Experience

Mr. Ahmad became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1993. He went on to spend three years in St. James’s University hospital in Leeds, working in an extremely busy breast unit gaining experience in breast cancer surgery and cosmetic procedures, including breast augmentations and breast reductions.

He gained significant experience in autologous reconstruction techniques, at the University of Wales Hospital, Cardiff, where he worked with professor Robert Mansel, who holds an international reputation for his contribution towards modernising the field of breast surgery. At Singleton University Hospital in Swansea, Mr. Ahmad undertook a fellowship (All Wales Oncoplastic Fellowship) in oncoplastic breast surgery, working alongside plastic surgeons in Cardiff to consolidate and further develop techniques for reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery.

He was the first surgeon to successfully perform one-stage delayed breast reconstruction with a permanent implant using Strattice™, a technique that has the advantage of preventing further operations following surgery for breast cancer.

Mr Ahmad also helped the Mermaid unit introduce and establish the OSNA service in Cornwall. This rapid molecular technique prevents a second operation in breast cancer patients by allowing the surgeon to assess axillary nodal status at the time of the first surgery. He is able to perform an axillary clearance if indicated during the same operation thus preventing a second operation – and saving the patient a longer wait for results.

Research
Mr. Ahmad has a keen interest in research and has many presentations at yearly scientific conferences e.g. ORBS and ABS.

His academic achievements include papers and abstracts on breast disease management.

He is committed to educating forthcoming trainers in the art of modern oncoplastic techniques and ensuring that his own skills and knowledge are cutting edge.
