April Phantana-angkool, MD
Every patient is unique. I believe that the best approach to the diagnosis of breast cancer is a collaborative partnership with a patient and all available breast cancer specialties to achieve a compassionate and individualized treatment plan. Through honest discussion and tailored education, I hope to help empower my patients in all aspects of their medical care to help achieve their personal goals.
Services + Programs
- Breast surgery
- Breast surgical oncology
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.
