About Us

Home / About Us

Brisbane Comprehensive Breast and Endocrine Surgery is dedicated to providing patient centred care, in the areas of Breast, Endocrine and General Surgery. With expertise in breast cancer surgery, we are also one of few surgical practices in Queensland to offer reconstructive oncoplastic breast surgery. We consult and operate out of St Andrew’s Private Hospital in Spring Hill, and are happy to announce the opening of an additional consulting location in North Lakes.

In addition to offering traditional consultation and operative services, we are passionate about education for patients, families and doctors alike. We are currently developing informational videos for patients and families and we offer an outreach educational service for medical practices around the state. Our aim is to achieve better understanding of common breast and endocrine surgical conditions, from the first point of contact with the GP, all the way to the operating theatre.

We know that visiting a specialist can be a stressful time for many patients, so every member of our team is here to help you in your journey.
