Mr Neil Johns is a Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon in Hertfordshire
Mr Neil John's philosophy is to utilise oncoplastic breast surgical techniques to push the boundaries of breast conserving surgery by being able to excise large areas of the breast which provides the best oncological outcome, and at the same time being able to reshape or rebuild the breast to provide the best aesthetic outcomes. He is one of the few who regularly performs partial breast reconstruction with a fat only flap (chest wall perforator flap) following large lumpectomy thus maintaining breast shape and avoiding mastectomy in many cases.
