Professional statement

Mr Robert Milligan is a leading consultant oncoplastic breast surgeon based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne who specialises in the treatment of breast lumps and breast cancer with complex breast conservation surgery and reconstruction whenever possible, using partial breast reconstruction and breast reduction techniques. If mastectomy is required, he will always discuss breast reconstruction options first. In addition, Mr Milligan is also an expert in breast implant surgery, breast enlargement, breast reduction and breast clinic assessments.

Mr Milligan qualified from Newcastle University Medical School in 2006. He then completed his core and specialist surgical training in the Northern Deanery, where he rotated around the largest breast screening units in the North East of England, acquiring extensive clinical experience in oncoplastic breast surgery. Mr Milligan later became the first surgeon in the UK to introduce the LOCalizer system and Radiofrequency Identification Tags, an innovative radiation-free technology used to locate breast tumours. He now lectures on this subject internationally.

Besides his oncoplastic breast surgery practice, Mr Milligan has a keen interest in Education, Training and Surgical Innovation. He is the Gateshead representative on the regional Breast Tumour Pathway Board, the principal investigator for multiple national clinical trials and has authored various publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Alongside his NHS work at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Mr Milligan currently sees patients at Nuffield Health Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospital. Additionally, he also runs a breast clinic for breast cancer patients with new breast symptoms and for people who are considering aesthetic breast surgery.
