Care Philosophy

Chief, Breast Service, Department of Surgery I am a surgical oncologist with a practice dedicated to the treatment of breast cancer. My research has focused on how to apply the advances from clinical trials to daily surgical practice. I have co-chaired the joint committee of the American College of Surgeons, American College of Radiology, and College of American Pathologists on Standards for Breast Conserving Therapy for Invasive Breast Cancer and for Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) in 2002 and 2007. My current research interest is how treatment choices for breast cancer surgery are made. This includes medical decisions such as whether MRI is beneficial to the woman with a newly diagnosed breast cancer, as well as a study of factors which are important to women when making treatment choices, how well they understand their choices, and the level of conflict they experience with their surgeon. Another area of research interest is to identify factors which predict for successful lumpectomy. I have studied the impact that multiple surgeries to obtain clear margins, microscopic tumor type, and presentation of the cancer without a mammographic abnormality have on the success of treatment. I am the surgical editor of the textbook Diseases of the Breast and a co-author of Breast Cancer for Dummies. I curently serve as the Secretary of the Society for Surgical Oncology, the professional organization for surgeons who specialize in cancer treatment.

New York, NY |
Very educated. Confident. Experienced and sharp. Focused on what she's doing. I had a list of 10-15 questions for her during initial consultation. She answered all of them step by step before I even spoke. Had no questions left. Surgery went well.
