My Mission

“Passionate about educating and empowering patients concerning their disease, and guiding them through treatment with confidence.”

My story

My path to becoming a Breast Surgeon has not been straightforward, but I am positive that I am doing what I have been called by God to do. Cancer is a scary word and it has a way of humbling you. I realized my love for cancer patients very early on in surgical residency. Through training, I was exposed to many cancer patients with various types of cancer. Unfortunately, not all cancers are curable when found, especially in later stages. However, I was witness to the incredible fight inside cancer patients, and their willingness to listen, understand and battle their diagnosis, either to cure or death was awe-inspiring.

So, I decided during that first year of residency that I wanted to be a cancer surgeon. Throughout training, I began to feel myself drawn to the disease process of breast cancer and breast diseases in general. I enjoyed watching my mentors educate and empower patients concerning their breast cancer diagnosis and guide them through treatment. It is strange to say, but I “fell in love” with breast cancer, to the point that I hate it and desire to help women (and men) get rid of it forever! I know that God has called me to treat breast diseases and cancer and I am eager and excited to help you through your journey.

How Can a Fellowship-Trained Breast Surgeon Help You?

A fellowship-trained Breast Surgeon has completed at least five years of training in General Surgery and has elected to train an additional year focused on the management of benign breast issues and breast cancer. During fellowship, a breast surgeon is exposed to a variety of benign breast problems including breast pain, cysts, benign tumors and even male gynecomastia, or enlarged breast tissue. However, the mainstay of this additional training is focused on the recognition, diagnosis, and complex treatment decisions concerning breast cancer. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. A common misconception is that all breast cancers are the same and should be treated the same. This could not be further from the truth. A fellowship-trained breast surgeon recognizes the complexity of breast cancer and guides patients through their cancer journey.
