Dr Paul CreaDR PAUL CREA is a Breast Surgeon practicing at St Vincent's Clinic in Sydney. He has degrees from the College of Surgeons in Australia and the United Kingdom and has also trained at the Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Centre in New York.

He is one of a small number of Surgical Oncologists in Australia whose work is largely dedicated to the treatment of breast problems. These can range from the simple relief of pain to the comprehensive management of cancer.

In 1999, he attended the European Institute of Oncology, one of the largest breast cancer research centres in the world, where the new technique of Sentinel Node Biopsy was pioneered. In the following two years, he has used this procedure on over two hundred patients who have thus been spared the risk of developing lymphoedema.

The management of breast cancer has become very complex. Patients who are seen at St Vincent's Clinic have available to them the expertise of a team of dedicated clinicians. This includes diagnostic specialists in the fields of Radiology/Sonography, Nuclear Medicine, Cytology/Histopathology and also a management team of Medical Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, Genetic Counsellors and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons who all work in close liaison with Dr Crea.
