“As a breast specialist trained in Breast Cancer & Reconstructive Surgery, her advanced surgical technique allows for the removal of cancerous tissue while attaining the optimal aesthetic outcome — known medically as oncoplastic breast surgery. Besides cancers, she treats many other breast conditions, including benign breast disorders such as breast cysts, lumps, nipple discharge, screening, breast abscess, lactational problems, breast reduction and male breast disorders.”
In 2010, Dr. Radhika received the HMDP scholarship awarded by the Ministry of Health for specialisation in Breast and Reconstructive Surgery. During this time, she trained for a year in the prestigious Nottingham Breast Institute (UK) as an Honorary Clinical Fellow.
Dr. Radhika has more than 20 years of surgical experience. In 1997, she obtained her MBBS in Singapore. Before joining the private sector, she was a consultant surgeon in the Department of Surgery at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. In 2012, her passion in clinical teaching placed her as a Clinical Lead in Surgery for Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, Nanyang Technological University/Imperial College of London. There, she served as an adjunct assistant professor.
