Clinical Interests

My clinical interests include treating all breast conditions ranging from benign to malignant disease in both women and men. I specialize in breast surgical oncology and offer surgical treatment options, including breast conservation surgery, nipple and skin sparing mastectomy, sentinel lymph node biopsy, and oncoplastic surgery. I utilize a multidisciplinary approach, which includes a team of physicians from medical oncology, radiation oncology, reconstructive plastic surgery, radiology, pathology and genetics. This allows us to provide individualized treatment options to address patient specific needs. I also have a focus on the evaluation and treatment of patients with hereditary breast cancer as well as those with a high-risk of developing breast cancer in the future.
