Consultant Oncoplastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgeon

Jamie McIntosh is an experienced Consultant Surgeon who specialises in all aspects of surgical treatment for breast cancer and breast reconstruction.

Having completed a comprehensive UK surgical training, he was awarded one of a limited number of prestigious National Oncoplastic Breast Surgical Fellowships. This allowed him to undertake further high level training with leading reconstructive breast and plastic surgeons before taking up his substantive consultant appointment in Bath.

He is a core member of the breast cancer multidisciplinary team (MDT) at the Royal United Hospital in Bath, and works within a team of other breast cancer specialists in looking after patients with both symptomatic and screen-detected breast cancers. All of his patients (NHS and Private) are discussed within the MDT, giving all patients reassurance that their results and treatment have been discussed transparently and openly and agreed upon with other specialists.

Jamie is able to offer all aspects of breast cancer treatment including breast conserving surgery (both lumpectomy and therapeutic mammoplasty), mastectomy, and axillary lymph node surgery including sentinel lymph node biopsy.

He is able to offer breast reconstruction either at the time of mastectomy (immediate breast reconstruction) or reconstruction for patients who have previously had a mastectomy without a reconstruction (delayed breast reconstruction), and will discuss which options are available to you including their advantages and disadvantages.

Jamie is also able to offer surgery to correct differences in breast size and or shape following treatment for breast cancer, such as breast reduction, breast lift (mastopexy) or breast augmentation with implants or fat injection (lipomodelling).

Jamie remains involved in research and training both regionally and nationally since his appointment in Bath, and working with consultant plastic surgical colleagues, Jamie helped develop and is the co-author of the national oncoplastic breast surgery syllabus for UK plastic surgical trainees.

He is an invited faculty member of the Royal College of Surgeons Oncoplastic Breast Surgery course, the European Cadaveric Oncoplastic Breast Surgical Skills Course and the Royal College of Surgeons Surgical Skills Course.
