Biography

Professor Jayant Vaidya is a breast cancer expert who specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the breast. He is a Consultant Surgeon at the Whittington, Royal Free and University College London Hospitals. His private breast practice is at the London Breast Institute at the Princess Grace Hospital, where he runs a One Stop breast clinic.

Professor Vaidya is very active in many research projects for breast disease and breast cancer. With his PhD thesis at University College London, he pioneered the concept of targeted intraoperative radiotherapy (TARGIT or IORT), to deliver radiotherapy to women at the time of surgery as opposed to the usual 6-week course of post-operative radiotherapy.

Professor Vaidya qualified in surgical oncology (MBBS MS DNB) from the Bombay University and the National Board. His PhD is from London University and he is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, FRCS, UK. At the age of 17 he was declared a National Scholar. He has worked at the Tata Memorial Hospital, Royal Marsden Hospital, University College London and the University of Dundee, and is currently Professor of Surgery and Oncology and Consultant Surgeon at University College London.
