What is a Breast Surgeon?


A breast surgeon is a surgeon who has a strong commitment to the care of patients with benign (noncancerous) and malignant (cancer) breast disease. Some breast surgeons have completed additional training, called a fellowship, which was dedicated to breast surgery or oncology. Others who have been a surgeon for many years may have begun practicing long before breast surgery fellowships were available.

Many breast surgeons have practices that are limited to breast patients; that is, they don’t treat any other types of patients. Breast surgeons practice in a variety of settings—in highly acclaimed academic centers, in community hospitals, and in private practices. All are dedicated to caring for their patients with breast disease. The management of breast patients, especially those with breast cancer, requires a multidisciplinary effort, and many breast surgeons work as part of an interdisciplinary team.
