Mr Anupam Modi

Specialist

Profile

My basic surgical training was in India. I completed my specialist training in UK (1996-2002) at the Royal Liverpool University Hospitals (including working at the Linda McCartney Centre) and at Castle Hill Hospital in Hull, in the UK.

At the same time I completed an MD in advanced diagnostic methods of breast surgery.

My breast and oncoplastic and reconstructive experience started in 1996 at the Royal Liverpool Hospitals.

Since 2002, I have gained experience as a Consultant General and Oncoplastic Surgeon in UK. I moved to Rotorua in 2014.

I have been a trainer for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, for the Specialist Registrar training scheme in the UK and for MS-Oncoplastic Surgery from the University of East Anglia.

My special interest in breast surgery allows me to take a patient centred approach to their care. I do understand that patients will be concerned about their life beyond treatment of their current condition, and try to balance this in my discussion. As I have a range of skills available, this allows me to tailor the recommended treatment.

Interests

I practice general surgery, and especially hernia surgery, gall bladder surgery, investigation and management of abdominal and bowel problems, and upper GI endoscopy.

I have a special interest in breast and oncoplastic breast surgery and routinely perform surgery for breast cancer, breast reconstructive procedures, including the use of implants, and symmetrisation procedures (including mastopexy, breast augmentations and reductions.

I am proficient in the use of the Direct to Implant technique of breast reconstruction, and have been trained in the use of liposuction and lipo-modelling for correction following breast cancer surgery.
