Farrokh Pakzad joined the team at Royal Surrey County Hospital in June 2012 as Consultant Oncoplastic Breast and Skin Cancer Surgeon. He studied at Sherborne School before starting his medical degree at Barts and Royal London Medical School.

He completed his higher surgical training in London, during which he was selected onto the highly competitive National Oncoplastic Fellowship program. This unique background in both plastic and oncological surgery enables him to provide the most effective treatments for both breast and skin cancer, while preserving cosmetic and functional outcomes wherever possible.

He has expertise in the management of all aspects of benign and malignant breast disease, oncoplastic breast conservation, immediate and delayed breast reconstruction and correction of breast asymmetry. He has wide expertise in the use of Intraoperative Sentinel Node Analysis using both the Metasin and the OSNA systems.

His other area of clinical expertise is in male breast reduction surgery and the management of skin cancers, particularly and melanoma. He is currently the clinical lead for the regional specialist skin cancer multidisciplinary team.

Personal interests

He recently moved from London to Surrey with his wife and 3 energetic young sons, who keep him invigorated, challenged and on his toes!
