Breast cancer surgeon Kimberly Van Zee discusses the personalized care delivered by a multidisciplinary team of breast cancer experts at Memorial Sloan Kettering.


I am a surgical oncologist with a practice dedicated exclusively to the treatment of breast cancer. For almost 20 years, I have used my skills to provide the highest quality surgical care to women with breast cancer. I spend two full days in the operating room each week, and I see outpatients in the new Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center.

My many years of education and training — including graduating summa cum laude from Pomona College, receiving my MD from Harvard Medical School, and completing my surgical training at Cornell University and Memorial Sloan Kettering — prepared me for the challenges of caring for women with breast cancer. I received the American Cancer Society’s Clinical Oncology Career Development award early in my career for my research. I have been honored for many years by being listed in “Top Doctors, NY Metro Area,”  “America’s Top Doctors for Cancer,” “New York Super Doctors,” and in New York Magazine’s “Best Doctors in New York.
