Specialist Breast Surgeon
A/Prof Elisabeth Elder is a specialist breast surgeon at the Westmead Breast Cancer Institute and privately through Specialist Services.
Elisabeth is a surgeon at the forefront of the developing field of oncoplastic breast surgery; developing techniques that concentrate on achieving not only the best possible outcome for a woman’s breast cancer but also an excellent cosmetic outcome.
“I feel very privileged to be able to help women though a difficult phase of their lives. By taking time to help my patients understand their condition and the treatment options that are available, and then working cooperatively with them through the process, I can do something that really makes a difference every day of my life.
I also love surgery – I always have – it’s a passion that’s stayed with me through my whole career.”
