About

The BreastSurgANZ Society was formed in 2010 and our members already manage around 90% of the women with early breast cancer in Australia and New Zealand. The Society is committed to: improving patient care through monitoring the quality of care provided by all our members; facilitating research into new treatments that improve cure rates and quality of life of breast cancer suffers; the improvement of training of new breast surgeons; and improving the knowledge base of existing membership through educational events.

Individual members’ surgical performance and outcomes are continuously monitored through assessment via the BreastSurgANZ Quality Audit.

Every member of BreastSurgANZ is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, upholding the ideals, tradition and the pursuit of excellence embodied by the College.

We encourage prospective patients to use our website to locate a full member BreastSurgANZ surgeon in your area, to find the information regarding breast disease via our patient education section or other links contained therein. Please feel free to contact us if you would like further information.
