Previously, he completed the Yorkshire and Humber higher surgical training programme, rotating through large oncoplastic breast surgery centres including Sheffield, Leeds and Doncaster. He won a national fellowship in oncoplastic breast surgery in 2016 and was appointed to the Nottingham Breast Institute where he successfully completed his training in advanced breast conservation and reconstruction techniques.
Mr Mazari provides a full range of oncoplastic breast services including breast conservation surgery, partial breast reconstruction, total breast reconstruction after mastectomy, revision and symmetrisation surgery. His clinics include screening and symptomatic breast clinics, combined breast cancer clinics and joint breast-plastic surgery clinics.
