Dr. Vahdat's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Vahdat "Linda Vahdat is a medical oncologist and the Clinical Director of Cancer Services at Norwalk Hospital. She is also a professor of medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College. She sees patients at both Norwalk Hospital and Memorial Sloan Kettering. Dr. Vahdat has more than 20 years of experience in caring for people with breast cancer, with particular expertise in triple negative breast cancer, metastatic breast cancer, and breast cancer that is at high risk of recurring. Her research aims to find new therapies, particularly for triple-negative breast cancer, and strategies that target the area immediately surrounding tumors, not just the tumors themselves, to prevent breast cancer from spreading. She received her medical degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and completed a residency there. She also completed a fellowship in hematology and oncology at MSK. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Vahdat "I only care for those with breast cancer. Within breast cancer my major interest is in metastatic disease or high risk adjuvant. The reason for this is that I am involved in many new therapies to treat existing breast cancer as well as strategies to reduce the risk of relapse of breast cancer that has not recurred.

Another research interest of mine is to understand and hopefully impact the development of chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy."
