Developments within Mr Paterson's Cleavage Sparing Mastectomy Cases

By Senior Associate, Clinical Negligence

It has been reported in the Birmingham Mail that a further 450 of Mr Ian Paterson's patients have been recalled by the Spire Hospital over fear that he has carried out unnecessary surgery on patients with benign breast tissue. 

It is thought that Mr Paterson effectively over treated patients by carrying out a Lumpectomy or Mastectomy instead of a much less invasive procedure.

I am representing over 20 clients making breast cancer compensation claims in relation to breast cancer treatment provided by Mr Paterson. Some of these clinical negligence cases involve allegations of unnecessary Mastectomy and Sentinel Node Clearance surgery.

The consequences of inappropriate and sometimes unnecessary surgery are serious. Many of my clients have been left devastated that they could have avoided the removal of a breast, a very radical operation. The impact is not only physical but psychological.

I would urge anyone that is concerned about the treatment they have received, whether it is a Cleavage Sparing Mastectomy or an unnecessary procedure to contact us for free legal advice about Cleavage Sparing Mastectomy Surgery claims.
