A/Prof  Beverley Fosh

A/Prof Beverley Fosh obtained her Fellowship in General Surgery from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2011. She graduated in Medicine from the University of Dundee in 1997 and obtained her post graduate Doctorate in cancer surgery in 2005 whilst working at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Adelaide.

After completing surgical training Beverley extended her experience in her chosen speciality through a Fellowship at Flinders Medical Centre in the Breast and Endocrine Surgical Unit.

She practises as a General Surgeon with a special interest in Breast and Surgical Oncology and is a Consultant Surgeon at Modbury Hospital.

Complementing her clinical practice Beverley has continued her research, published numerous papers and given presentations at State and International Meetings and is involved with trials for Breast Cancer treatment. She is a Senior Clinical Lecturer at Flinders University and supervised a PhD student project in Autologous Fat Transfer for patients who have had breast cancer. Her connection with The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons includes being a tutor and mentor for surgical trainees. She is also a lecturer for Medical Students.

Beverley is also the Chair of the executive committee for the South Australian Breast Cancer Study Group, which is a multidisciplinary group of health professionals to provide excellence in breast cancer care.

Beverley’s special interest is Breast surgery, for assessment, diagnosis and treatment of both benign and malignant disease, combining the best techniques of plastic surgery and oncology surgery to remove the cancer whilst maintaining the natural shape of the breast.. She works closely in a Multi-Disciplinary Team with Plastic Surgeons, Radiologists, Oncologists, Pathologists, Radiotherapists as well as Breast Care Nurses and Clinical Psychologists to give a holistic approach of care to each patient with cancer.

For those who carry the BRCA gene or have a strong family history of breast cancer, Beverley can offer wise and supportive counsel. Working in partnership with our plastic surgeons, she will guide you through every possible treatment option including breast reconstruction after mastectomy.

Bev is married with two children. Her interests include cooking, fitness and travel
