Margot LeStrange

I started my nursing career in 2004, and I have been a nurse practitioner in oncology since 2007. After graduating college, I worked as a RN on a medical-surgical floor at Georgetown University Hospital for more than three years. I was able to enhance my nursing knowledge and skill in caring for patients who have undergone orthopedic, urologic, and reconstructive plastic surgery.

After becoming a nurse practitioner, I worked in the division of surgical oncology at Beth Israel Medical Center. While there, I gained tremendous experience in providing care in both the inpatient and outpatient setting to a very diverse patient population with complex needs, including patients with gastrointestinal cancer, melanoma, and sarcomas.

I started as a nurse practitioner at MSK in 2014 in the outpatient Breast Surgery Service, where I practice independently and in collaboration with doctors in providing comprehensive care to breast surgery patients. My role includes performing history and physical exams for new patients with a breast cancer diagnosis. I also assist in the development and implementation of a treatment plan and provide care to patients at their postoperative visit and subsequent follow-ups.

I am an active member of the Oncology Nursing Society. I am very passionate about my role as a nurse practitioner, and I am committed to providing high-quality care to my patients. I recognize the importance of providing a strong network of support to patients and their families as they cope with the diagnosis of cancer, surgery, and adapting to life after surgery.

I work closely with surgeons Monica Morrow and Melissa Pilewskie. We combine our expertise to provide comprehensive care to our patients at every step of their cancer journey.
