This content was provided by Dr. Tolnitch I am a breast cancer surgeon. Like many doctors I started in medicine because I wanted to help people. I've always been a problem solver so I think thats why surgery particularly appeals to me. Early in my career no one was specializing in breast cancer. I started developing an expertise on that and then dedicated my whole practice to breast cancer. I think patients should choose Duke for breast care because we bring the most expertise to the table not only in surgery but also in oncology radiation and radiology. Duke has a longstanding history of comprehensive cancer work that includes research and clinical trials. Outside of work I enjoy riding horses being outside and gardening. I also run a non-profit foundation called Pretty in Pink that raises money for breast cancer surgery chemotherapy and radiation for local patients who cant afford treatment.
