Dr Brendan Louie is a second-generation surgeon, specialising in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr Louie completed his medical degree at the University of Queensland before furthering his plastic and reconstructive training in Brisbane and Melbourne. It was both his extensive training and upbringing that influenced his decision to focus on head and neck reconstruction, limb and hand trauma, post mastectomy breast reconstruction, and skin cancer, with a particular interest in melanoma.
Dr Louie deals with all skin cancers, ranging from small, slow, growing lesions in cosmetically sensitive areas to aggressive, rapidly growing cancers and sadly in some cases advanced metastatic disease. In patients with concerning lesions, Dr Louie will likely recommend a biopsy or excision.
As part of the melanoma multidisciplinary team at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s hospital, Dr Louie treats a significant number of patients with melanoma. Over the years he has seen dramatic changes in both the surgical and oncological treatment of this disease, with encouraging advancements leading to better control and even cure for some patients who suffer from it. Staying involved in melanoma research and up-to-date with the latest trials allows him to help patients understand and make choices in the treatment of their cancer.
