Elizabeth Ball

Breast Surgery

Ipswich Hospital

I graduated from the University of Wales in 1998, and completed my specialist surgical training on the Cambridge surgical rotation. I was awarded a prestigious National Oncoplastic Fellowship at the Royal Marsden (2011-12) where I gained experience in advanced oncoplastic surgical procedures.

I completed a PhD in 2006, researching the molecular mechanisms involved in cancer growth. I continue to have an active interest in research, and am currently working towards a MS degree in Oncoplastic Surgery at the University of East Anglia.

I was appointed as the third Consultant in the Ipswich Breast Unit in May 2013. I perform all routine breast surgical operations, and specialise in re-shaping the breast, and both breast and nipple reconstruction. I have a special interest in the family history of breast cancer.
