About Arden Breast Clinic
The Arden Breast Clinic is a collaboration of specialist breast surgeons, oncologists and radiologists trained to the highest level, committed to offering the best possible care for all aspects of breast health. Based at the Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital, Leamington Spa, we provide a one-stop service to rapidly diagnose breast conditions. We utilise the latest medical research and surgical techniques across our practice to give our clients holistic, up-to-date treatment and management options. Your care with us is approached in a multi-disciplinary manner in order to provide first class breast care. The Arden Breast Clinic offers patient-focused care to all clients, whether attending for a consultation regarding breast pain, implant assessment, or treatment for breast cancer.
Led by consultant oncoplastic breast surgeons, we run clinics twice weekly exclusively from the Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital, Leamington Spa.
Our clinics run on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For the vast majority of our clients, they will receive any required investigations on the same day. Occasionally, clients may be requested to re-attend later the same day, or later on in the week. Our aim is to make your visit as stress-free as possible.
Treatments and Procedures
Breast cancer is treated in many different ways. Surgery, Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy, and Endocrine (tablet) therapy are all used in modern practice. Some patients may be recommended a single treatment, whereas others may be recommended a combination of therapies. At Arden Breast Clinic, our team includes Surgeons, Oncologists, Histopathologists, Radiologists and Nurses, and we will discuss your case at depth to ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment regime, whilst taking your wishes into consideration. All treatment regimes are personalised and will be discussed with you comprehensively to ensure you are on board with our recommendations. We understand it can be daunting and unsettling talking about potential risks and side effects, but we will give you as much time as you need to consider your options.
If you decide to proceed with a mastectomy, your surgeon will discuss breast reconstruction with you. You do not have to have a breast reconstruction, and some women opt to be flat chested. You may wish to have wear a breast prosthesis, which gives the appearance of a natural breast under clothing.
Breast reconstruction is the process of re-creating a breast, either with an implant, your own tissue (autologous), or a combination of both. It is a very personal subject. There are many things to consider when choosing a breast reconstruction, and your surgeon and breast care nurse will spend as much time as you require discussing suitable options with you.
Cosmetic Breast Surgery
If you are unhappy with the shape or size of your breasts, cosmetic breast surgery may be a suitable option for you. For many women, it can help to restore and enhance self-confidence. Undergoing cosmetic breast surgery is a big decision, so it is important to be well informed and not rush into anything. Suitable candidates should be in good physical health, within their ideal body weight range and without extensive medical history. The Arden Breast Clinic can offer a wide range of cosmetic breast surgeries.
