I am a pathologist who is board-certified in anatomic and clinical pathology and in cytopathology. My area of expertise is the surgical pathology of soft-tissue and bone tumors. As part of the multidisciplinary teams involved in the management of these tumors, I work closely with colleagues from surgical oncology, orthopaedic oncology, adult and pediatric medical oncology, radiology and radiation therapy. My role as a pathologist mainly involves establishing accurate diagnoses and, as a result, guiding treatment decisions. Working in a large cancer center also gives me an opportunity to be in the forefront in incorporating the latest molecular testing assays in the work-up of these complicated tumors.

My expertise also includes cytopathology — the science of evaluating individual cells to make a diagnosis. The cells are obtained through a minimally invasive procedure called fine-needle aspiration biopsy. As part of the cytopathology team, I perform fine-needle aspirations of superficial palpable lesions and am also trained to perform biopsies of deep-seated lesions under imaging guidance.
