Jose is committed to providing the highest quality of care and offers a compassionate service that is responsive to the needs of patients with all breast conditions. He is focused on delivering research-based breast cancer care within a multidisciplinary team. Patients and family are provided with clear full information and, equally, he strives for prompt and comprehensive communication with referring doctors.
A priority in Jose’s approach to patient management is the integration of plastic surgery techniques into breast cancer surgery in order to preserve aesthetic outcomes and quality of life without compromising local control of disease.
