Fellow 2016- Samriti Sood
Dr Samriti Sood
MBBS (Hons) MS FRACS
Dr Samriti Sood is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, a trained general surgeon who is currently a post-fellowship trainee in Breast Surgery with The BreastSurgANZ Association.
Dr Sood completed her schooling at Girraween High School and then medical training at the University of New South Wales in 2007. She began General Surgical training in 2010 working in Sydney, Canberra and regional NSW hospitals. She completed her surgical training in 2015 along with a Masters of Surgery (Breast Surgery) in 2013 from The University of Sydney. During her training, she has worked at the Breast Cancer Institute at Westmead hospital where she gained oncoplastic breast surgery experience. This fuelled her interest in Breast Surgery which offered an exciting and stimulating career choice.
Her interests are in oncoplastic breast surgery, which allows women undergoing breast surgery to make important choices regarding their overall body image and helps improve their quality of life.
While at the Breast and Surgical Oncology unit at the Poche centre, Dr Sood is gaining experience in the clinical management of patients with both benign and malignant breast disease. She is learning the principles of surgical oncology, oncoplastic and reconstruction techniques as well as the use of multiple radiological modalities available in the management of breast cancer patients. She is participating in several courses held annually on oncoplastic breast surgery techniques, clinical application of ultrasound in the assessment of patients, and conducting research in breast reconstruction surgery. She is also currently studying further at The University of Sydney, enrolled in a Graduate Certificate of Breast Surgery (two year structured program) which aims to broaden the understanding and knowledge of the clinical aspects of breast surgery.
Samriti is excited to be a part of the team at the Poche centre. She feels privileged to be given an opportunity to work with exemplary mentors who support and encourage her development and expertise as a breast oncoplastic surgeon helping her deliver high quality care to all patients she will encounter in her future practice.
