And if you have insurance both Ms Khan and Mr Cartlidge are fee-approved by all of the major insurers and can see you without any additional cost. We are able to provide a full range of services for diagnosing and treating breast disease.

A one-stop breast clinic means that you see a consultant surgeon and have all necessary investigations on the same day. This might mean a mammogram (breast X-ray), ultrasound scan or a biopsy (needle test). Usually this means that you will have a firm or likely diagnosis on the day you attend. The clinic runs on Saturday mornings meaning that you don’t need to take time off work and can get on with the rest of your weekend afterwards. If further investigation such as breast MRI or a CT scan is required this can be arranged at Spire Murrayfield.

Ms Khan and Mr Cartlidge have together treated hundreds of patients with breast cancer. Due to their combined experience in cosmetic and oncoplastic breast surgery they are able to offer the full range of breast cancer surgery. This includes mammaplasty to give uplift or size reduction when removing cancer or breast reconstruction at the time of mastectomy.
