Dr. Ping-en (Paul) Chen Thyroid Surgeon
I’m a specialist Breast, Endocrine and General Surgeon with extensive experience in oncoplastic breast surgery, thyroid and parathyroid surgery with the utilisation of nerve monitoring.
I completed my surgical training at St Vincent’s Hospital and Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney after graduating from the University of Auckland. I then entered a two year post-fellowship training with BreastSurgANZ in oncoplastics breast and endocrine surgery at high volume centres in Perth and Melbourne. In pursuit of techniques in the forefront of breast surgery, I completed further training with world renowned oncoplastics breast surgeons in France and Italy.
In 2018, I attained a Masters of Surgery in Oncoplastics Breast Surgery and was awarded the John Lowenthal Medal for research from the University of Sydney. I have been widely published in surgical peer reviewed journals and have presented internationally in a wide spectrum of surgical topics. I continue to have involvement in the field of oncoplastics now teaching oncoplastic surgery to training breast surgeons.
Effective communication is critical throughout all aspects of medical care and I hold this as one of the core values of my practice. Furthermore, I am a firm believer in achieving patient satisfaction by combining excellent oncological result with maximal aesthetic outcome, delivering the best possible patient care.
With Taiwanese heritage I am multilingual and fluent in English, Taiwanese and Mandarin.
