I am a surgeon who specializes in the care and treatment of patients with breast cancer, and those at increased risk for breast cancer. I have extensive experience with sentinel lymph node biopsy, nipple sparing mastectomy, and the newest techniques in breast cancer surgery for both invasive breast cancer and DCIS.

I am the author of a variety of publications on the role of sentinel lymph node biopsy in breast cancer, the role of MRI in patients at high risk for breast cancer, and I have received a Komen Foundation Grant investigating the role of PET scanning in breast cancer.  I recently completed an NCI funded clinical trial investigating the effects of the COX2 inhibitor, Celebrex, on breast cancer tissue.

I am a member of many professional organizations including the Society of Surgical Oncology, the American Society of Breast Diseases, the American Society of Breast Surgeons, and the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group.
