Mr Kneeshaw's major interests are breast disease, breast reconstruction and cosmetic breast surgery. He received training in regional units in Yorkshire specialising in reconstructive surgery and has completed a National Oncoplastic Fellowship. Mr Kneeshaw is experienced in all areas of breast cancer surgery. He can offer a wide range of reconstructive procedures. These include immediate or delayed setting expander-based reconstruction and tissue based reconstruction using latissimus dorsi (autologous and with implant). He is also able to perform balancing procedures such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, uplifts, nipple reconstruction and tattooing. Mr Kneeshaw is also able to offer lipomodelling which can be used to treat some asymmetry or shape defects after previous breast surgery.
I have had 5 operations in 6 months by Mr Kneeshaw due to Pagetts disease, cancer cells in my right breast. He did a biopsy, removed my milk ducts and nipple area (where I was having problems), did another operation as there were still cancer cells in 2 areas, he removed my nodes under my arm, then I had a mastectomy using my stomach to rebuild my breast in an 8 hour operation. It was a very difficult 6 months for me and Mr Kneeshaw and his team were excellent. The consultations and surgery were 1st class. The last operation had a 4 month recovery period and after only 6 weeks I was able to return to work, as I am an accountant sat at a desk all day. My operation was 9 weeks ago now and although I look like a jigsaw puzzle, I can not believe how well I have healed already! As all my cancer cells have gone I have had a lucky escape from the dreaded CANCER! What would we do without people like these to save our lives?
I have just finished surgery/treatment for breast cancer and was fortunate enough to have Mr Kneeshaw as my consultant - he is one of the most compassionate and kind people I have ever met.
I've been a patient of Mr Kneeshaw's as a transgendered male undergoing a bilateral mastectomy and chest reconstruction. Since my initial consultation he has been patient, kind, and professional, showing a great ability to emphasise and put patients at ease. He provided and talked me through all available options, taking the time to show me previous cases as similar to my own as possible, and was honest about what results to expect. His friendly personality went a long way in making me feel less apprehensive and scared when the time for my surgery came around, and I am very pleased with the results of his work on my chest. He was very understanding of the specific needs of transgendered patients with regards to surgical treatment, and not once was I made to feel uncomfortable - he is concerned with giving the best result to his patient, whatever their reason for surgery. Great guy, great surgeon.
I recently had a breast reduction carried out by Dr Kneeshaw, and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. I am only 21 so the thought of having it done was very scary and daunting to me but Dr Kneeshaw made me feel at ease from the very first visit. He showed me work that he had previously carried out and that put my mind at ease. It has now been a month and the after care I have received has been amazing and the results are incredible even after only a month. my scars are barely visible and they look amazing. I am one very happy customer :)
