specialize in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of breast cancer. I am trained both as a breast surgeon and as a gynecologic oncologist. My research interests involve clinical and laboratory studies of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer including breast cancers caused by mutations in the BRCA genes. I have extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of hereditary breast cancer. I am a principal investigator for several research projects, including one to investigate the use of a special estrogen PET (positron emission tomography) imaging substance in patients with breast cancer.

Additionally, I help conduct clinical trials at MSKCC to evaluate new cancer therapies.Read more
