Mr Parto Forouhi
BSc, MBChB, MD, FRCS
Consultant breast surgeon, surgical oncologist
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
My current role
I am a consultant breast surgeon, surgical oncologist, and the screening surgical lead in the Cambridge Breast Unit
I have been with the Cambridge breast unit for over 17 years, having previously worked in London and Edinburgh.
I have a keen interest in improving surgical quality outcomes. My surgical interests include intraoperative use of ultrasound scan to improve quality in breast conservation surgery, reducing the use of surgical drains and resultant complications through use of innovative surgical techniques, and introducing new technology to improve surgical outcomes. Working closely with his plastic surgery colleagues, I offer a full range of techniques for better aesthetics of the breast following cancer surgery (also called “Oncoplastic Breast Surgery”).
I am a surgical trainer, having trained several generations of young surgeons, and I am the National Quality Assurance reviewer and an External Assessor for the College of Surgeons.
