Jane O’Brien is a specialist breast and oncoplastic surgeon whose practice is exclusively confined to breast work, encompassing the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of all benign and malignant conditions of the breast, and surveillance and prophylactic surgery for high risk groups.
Her areas of special interest are in “oncoplastic” breast surgery, aimed at maximising the cosmetic result following breast conservation surgery for breast cancer using advanced surgical techniques, and nipple- sparing mastectomy and reconstruction, both in the preventive setting and as treatment for cancer.Read More
Fewer than 9% of Australian surgeons are female, and the Epworth Breast Service is therefore very fortunate and proud to be able to offer our breast patients the expertise of two highly trained and extremely experienced female specialist breast and oncoplastic surgeons, both of whom have extensive international training and experience.
