Laura Johnson was appointed as a Consultant oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgeon at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in 2016. She completed her undergraduate training at Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Medical School in 2004, before returning to undertake her doctoral thesis. Her MD involved research into a novel magnetic technique for sentinel lymph node biopsy in breast cancer and was awarded in 2012. Her postgraduate training concluded with a training interface group (TIG) national oncoplastic fellowship at the Royal Marsden Hospital. Laura also holds a post-graduate certificate in medical education and is a faculty member for a number of post-graduate courses including the Master’s degree in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery. She has a special interest in implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) and is collecting and managing the UK series of this rare disease. She has presented this data nationally and internationally and, working alongside the Association of Breast Surgeons, continues to raise awareness of it (including collaborating with the MHRA). Laura believes in tailoring care for each individual patient by using the best available evidence to identify a range of suitable treatment options and to help the patient decide upon the best course of care for them.
Dr. Laura Johnson, an Angel from above. A professional doctor who explained every details of what she will do prior surgery. Cancer found on my right breast and with my medical history I asked for a double mastectomy, she then read my medical records and agreed with the double mastectomy and an implant. I am so fortunate to have Dr. Laura Johnson as my surgeon. She is caring and understands me. I am indebted to you Dr. Laura and will never forget you. THANK YOU with all my heart and soul.

I came in late afternoon on a Friday with a suspected post-surgical infection. One of the other doctors was about to let me go back home but thank goodness Ms. Johnson was there to admit me into hospital. I really appreciated how she came to check in on me during the day on Saturday even though it was the weekend. She was very reassuring as well as very clear and honest about the situation. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your compassion and care.
Miss Laura Johnson made my mastectomy and Brest implant. Thanks to her the whole process was so smooth, she made me feel so calm through it and made me face with smile whatever was coming. Great surgeon and grey personality! A lifetime won’t be enough to Thank her!
