If surgery is needed; an operation date is usually set between one to two weeks from the appointment if required. Surgery for cancer is usually arranged within a few days. Most operations are day cases; however some operations may require a one night stay in hospital. All aspects of the operation will be discussed in clinic and on the day of the operation.
Ms Shrotria uses a minimal scar technique during operations. She has pioneered this type of surgery and is probably the first breast surgeon to offer this and carry out operations through invisible scars. She does not use drains after surgery and this is also a unique feature which is done to reduce discomfort and pain after surgery. She has an extremely low complication rate and has never required taking patients back to theatre for any complications.
