Dr. Feldman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Feldman "Sheldon Marc Feldman, M.D., F.A.C.S. is the Chief of Breast Surgery Division of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and the Vivian L. Milstein Associate Professor of Clinical Surgery at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Feldman is a leader in the innovation and development of new minimally invasive surgical techniques and diagnostic tools for breast cancer. He is the principal investigator for both single-site and multi-centered research protocols that aim to advance the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Both Dr. Feldman's career path and his humanistic approach to patient care was motivated by the tragic loss of his sister Fern to breast cancer at age 37. Dr. Feldman received his medical degree from New York University Medical School where he was awarded membership to the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. He completed his residency training in surgery at New York University Medical Center-Bellevue Hospital, and fulfilled a fellowship in peripheral vascular surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, NJ. He was recruited as Chief of Breast Surgery to Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City in 2000 and was appointed Professor of Clinical Surgery at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2008, the same year he joined NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Feldman is an active member of the Society of Surgical Oncology and American Society of Clinical Oncology, and is President of the American Society of Breast Surgeons. He has been a member of the editorial board for The Breast Journal and the Annals of Surgical Oncology, and an invited reviewer for the journal Cancer and American Journal of Surgery. He has lectured and published nationally and internationally extensively on minimally invasive breast surgery, mammary ductoscopy, endoscopic/oncoplastic surgery, sentinel node biopsy, nipple sparing mastectomy, intraoperative radiation (IORT), lymphedema prevention, environmental factors and breast cancer, compassion in medicine, physician-patient communication and holistic surgical practice.
