DR ROGER GRAHAM - MBCHB FCS (PLAST)
Doctor Graham is a plastic surgeon based in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. He did his undergraduate training at the University of Cape Town and graduated with distinction in 1993. His post-graduate surgical training was done at Groote Schuur Hospital from where he qualified as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon in 2003.
Dr Graham has wide experience in the surgical management of melanomas and jointly runs the Cape Melanoma Clinic with an oncologist, Dr Georgina McAdam. He has many years experience with the management of skin cancers, in particular those involving cosmetically sensitive areas of the face that require reconstruction.
His other special area of interest is that of breast reconstruction following mastectomy. He uses a variety of techniques employing the patients' own tissues or tissue expanders and implants.
Dr Graham has chosen to stop doing cosmetic procedures owing to the demand of patients requiring cancer surgery and reconstructive surgeries. He apologises for any inconvenience caused by this decision.
Owing to Dr Graham's passion for cycling he has written a couple of very interesting articles about sports and health.
Doctor Graham is a member of the Association of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons of Southern Africa.
