Prof Anurag Srivastava - All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India

Prof Srivastava talks with ecancer at The Umberto Veronesi Milan Breast Cancer Conference about the benefits of performing a skin and/or nipple saving mastectomy when comparing against lumpectomy & radiotherapy combinations. He discusses the higher local recurrence rate in patients receiving lumpectomy and radiotherapy compared to patients receiving a full mastectomy.  

Prof Srivastava goes on to outline the surgical procedure followed in the All India Institute of Medical Sciences when performing a skin sparing mastectomy. 

Dr Viviana Galimberti also spoke to ecancer about skin sparing mastectomies at the 2017 St. Gallen International Breast Cancer Conference here
