    Miss Joanna Franks is a Consultant Breast and Oncoplastic Surgeon, specialising in cancer care, breast and reconstructive surgery. She is based at University College London NHS Hospital and also sees patients privately, including at The Wellington Hospital. She has expertise in assessing and managing all breast conditions, including both malignant and benign disease. Her particular interests are the detection of early breast cancers, oncoplastic breast conservation, neo-adjuvant strategies, mastectomy with immediate reconstruction, symmetrisation, risk reduction and screening, including if patients come from a high-risk family background.
