Mr Lee Jackson achieved his fellowship in General Surgery in 2003, and then immediately proceeded to become the first Breast fellow at Royal Perth Hospital under the leadership of 2 pre-eminent Perth surgeons, Mr Peter Willsher and Prof Christobel Saunders.

Mr Jackson then had the opportunity to spend almost 5 years at the Nottingham Breast Institute in the UK, to further develop skills in breast surgery and especially breast reconstruction including a variety of both partial and complete breast reconstruction.

On returning to Perth, Mr Jackson took on the challenging role as Head of the Multidisciplinary Breast service for the South Metro Health service, aiming to combine the Royal Perth Hospital service with the newly opened Fiona Stanley Hospital Breast service.

Although continuing with general surgery, Mr Jackson has a special interest in the care of patients with breast diseases especially breast cancer and particularly with breast preserving procedures, as well as partial and complete breast reconstruction. He currently consults and operates at St John of God Subiaco and Murdoch Hospitals, Royal Perth Hospital and Fiona Stanley Hospital.

Mr Jackson is trained in the use of Intraoperative Radiation Therapy, a rapid radiation treatment for breast cancer. Suitable for select women with early breast cancer, IORT reduces treatment time from three to seven weeks of daily radiation to a single, targeted treatment that is administered while a patient is undergoing surgery to remove the cancer.

Mr Jackson has sub-specialty interests in:
