About Dr Eva Nagy
FRACS, PhD, MBBS, BMedSci (Hons), GradCertSurg (Breast Surgery)
Dr Eva Nagy is the Consultant Breast Surgeon at Sydney Oncoplastic Surgery.
After obtaining her medical degree from the University of Melbourne, Eva's medical career began in Melbourne and Singapore. She subsequently began formal surgical training in Sydney, and completed rotations in various hospitals including Royal North Shore Hospital, St. Vincent's Hospital, and Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital. Upon completing her training and becoming a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Eva embarked on sub-specialty training in Breast Surgery. These stints saw her receive comprehensive instruction in advanced surgical techniques relevant to breast conditions at the Poche Centre in North Sydney, and at the Nottingham Breast Institute, a class-leading breast cancer treatment centre in the United Kingdom.
While Eva offers the full suite of surgical options for breast cancer patients, her professional interests include advancing the use of breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy) for patients where mastectomies are not a necessity, and the use of reconstructive techniques to help restore appearances after cancer surgery. She is continually mindful of patients' emotional well-being and quality of life when discussing treatment plans, and always ensures that patient health is never compromised. Additionally, through working alongside field-leading oncoplastic specialists during her fellowship training, Eva gained significant expertise in reconstructive techniques for patients with complex situations or who require corrective surgical treatment for prior breast surgery.
Eva's ongoing research in breast cancer has provided her with opportunities to present her findings in conferences such as the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, and the Association of Breast Surgery Conference in Glasgow. Her current research explores the feasibility of safely de-escalating treatment protocols for cancer patients. More details on Eva's research and publications are found here.
More recently, Eva's informational contributions catered to both medical professionals and the general public include the latest review of Cancer Council Australia's Understanding Breast Cancer brochure, North Shore Private Hospital's GP Updates, Healthe Care's GP Rounds and Women's Health Week Podcast, and our own GP Newsletter.
In addition to her medical degree (MBBS), Eva has a PhD in Biomedical Science, a Bachelor's Degree (Hons) in Biomedical Science, a Graduate Certificate in Breast Surgery from the University of Sydney, and is a full member of Breast Surgeons of Australia and New Zealand (BreastSurgANZ). Additionally, Eva is a Visiting Medical Officer with BreastScreen NSW.
Outside of medicine, Eva enjoys yoga, comedies, and spending time with her Great Danes.
