Research Methods/Techniques

I am deeply committed to the care of women with cancer, and I believe in involving patients and their families throughout the treatment process. I strive to use minimally invasive approaches to surgical interventions whenever possible, in order to promote reduced recovery times and minimization of complications. I also have a strong commitment to outcomes-based clinical research, encouraging patient involvement in clinical trials when feasible, to improve the care we provide all women.
