Mr Nicolas Beechey Newman

Consultant Breast Surgeon

Mr Beechey-Newman now only sees patients privately.  Previously he was a Consultant Surgeon to the Breast Unit at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospitals between 1998 and 2009.  He left to become the Clinical Director of the Harley Street Breast Clinic and to devote more time to his private patients at the London Bridge Hospital.  He specialises exclusively in breast disorders, including breast cancer, breast reconstructive surgery and all aspects of benign breast problems, including nipple discharge and breast pain.

He was one of the first surgeons in the UK to perform sentinel node biopsy after visiting Dr Armando Giuliano who first described the technique. 

Nicolas also pioneered breast duct micro-endoscopy in Europe. He has researched and written extensively on these two subjects the latter being the subject of more than 2,000 media articles. He has published the only study in the world literature to look at the problem of breast cancer in very young women (less than 25 years of age).

In 2003 Nicolas set up London’s first one-stop breast diagnostic clinic at the London Bridge Hospital. He now runs similar one-stop clinics at The Lister Hospital and at The Harley Street Breast Clinic.
