- I am a fellowship trained surgical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of patients with breast cancer and other breast disease. I am board certified in general surgery and am a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. I am trained as a surgeon‐scientist and have significant experience in the study of tumor biology, cell signaling, and laboratory development of novel targeted therapies.
My interests include neoadjuvant and targeted therapy for breast cancer, hereditary breast cancer, chemoprevention, male breast cancer, DCIS, and innovative imaging modalities for breast cancer screening and diagnosis. I also have expertise in management of patients at high risk for breast cancer through specialized screening protocols and risk reducing therapy.
My research interests include advancing the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer through surgery, imaging, radiation, and chemotherapy.
I am a member of several professional organizations including the Society of Surgical Oncology and the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group.
