He then went on to gain 14 years' experience in general surgery before becoming a Consultant at the Breast Unit at Guy's and St Thomas' hospitals. He now specialises exclusively in breast disorders including benign breast problems, breast cancer and breast reconstructive surgery following breast cancer.

He was one of the first surgeons in the UK to perform sentinel node biopsy after visiting Dr Armando Giuliano who first described the technique. Nicolas also pioneered breast duct micro-endoscopy in Europe. He has researched and written extensively on these two subjects the latter being the subject of more than 2,000 media articles. He has published the only study in the world literature to look at the problem of breast cancer in very young women (less than 25 years of age).
