Why choose a fellowship trained surgeon?
A fellowship-trained breast surgeon is a general surgeon who has completed additional training focused on breast diseases, both benign and malignant. This specialization includes training in diagnostic radiology, breast pathology, psychosocial aspects of a cancer diagnosis, plastic surgery, medical oncology, and radiation oncology. A fellowship-trained breast surgeon takes a multidisciplinary and holistic approach to keep a woman as whole as possible while aggressively treating breast cancer. The trends in breast surgery are toward conservation of a woman’s appearance and minimally invasive surgery to treat cancer.
