Mohammad Keshtgar: Pioneering surgical oncologist

Forefront of patient care in breast cancer There's an elaborate jewel-encrusted “Thank you” card on the noticeboard of consultant surgical oncologist Mohammad Keshtgar.

Keshtgar adds that he first wanted to become a surgeon when, as a young man in Iran, his cousin was injured in a traffic accident. “She sustained an injury to her leg but as there was no vascular surgeon available in our town, her leg had to be amputated.” This, he says, “made me want to make a difference, quickly” >>>
