About Kelvin Chong
I am part of the new generation of breast surgeons who are trained oncoplastic breast surgery. This is a new field of breast surgery, which applies both breast cancer surgery, which is assimilated with plastics and reconstructive techniques. The oncoplastic approach aims to minimize the cosmetic effects of breast cancer surgery and enhance the wellbeing of breast cancer patients.
My philosophy in my breast cancer practice is that every skill and effort should be deployed to provide the most effective treatment as well as minimize any long-term adverse effects of breast cancer treatment. My practice includes numerous support services that provide support with the aim of returning my patients back to normality.
My NHS base hospital is at St Albans City Hospital and Watford General Hospital which are part of the West Hertfordshire NHS Trust (link).
After research, I continued into advanced surgical training in the south-west London Training rotation. I have trained at leading breast cancer centres in London and the Southeast such as the Royal Marsden Hospital and Royal Surrey County Hospital. After completing my training, I pursued a fellowship with renowned breast and plastic surgeons in Dusseldorf and in Lyon. I posses a postgraduate certificate in breast ultrasonography from the University of London.
