Biography

Mr Paul Thiruchelvam is a Consultant Breast and Reconstructive Surgeon at New Victoria Hospital. 

He graduated from Imperial College and undertook his Surgical Training in London, during which time he rotated through the breast units at Imperial College and The Royal Marsden Hospitals. He completed his surgical training as a National Oncoplastic Group (TIG) fellow at the renowned Nottingham Breast Institute, where he undertook research mapping the anatomy of chest wall perforator flaps (LICAP & LTAPs) in partial and total breast reconstruction.

Mr Thiruchelvam has undertaken travelling fellowships to the MD Anderson, Mayo Clinic, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centers, and was awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Fellowship in 2016, visiting the United States and Japan to observe the use of axillary reverse mapping (ARM) and Lymphatic Microsurgical Preventing Healing Approach (LYMPHA) in primary lymphoedema prevention. Mr Thiruchelvam has pioneered lymphoedema preventative surgery and is the lead of the only group in the United Kingdom offering this service to patients at high risk of developing lymphoedema. As a member of the expert panel on breast cancer related lymphoedema, he was involved in drafting best practice guidelines for the American Society of Breast Surgeons. Mr Thiruchelvam is the current Chair of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Oncoplastic Beast Surgery faculty and on the oncoplastic faculty for the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS).

Mr Thiruchelvam received his PhD in Molecular Oncology from Imperial College in 2010, under supervision from Professors Simak Ali, Laki Buluwela and Charles Coombes. He was awarded the first joint clinical research fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons and Cancer Research:UK to fund his research. He is actively involved in clinical trials, including the multi-centre PRADA trial.
