That has always been my personal mission for every patient.”

Anderson performs say day biopsies in the office and specializes in nipple-sparing mastectomy, hidden scar surgery and oncoplastic lumpectomy. She works together with plastic surgeons to provide immediate reconstruction for her patients.

Anderson received her medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pa. She completed her residency in general surgery at Christiana Care Health System in Newark, Del., and a breast surgical oncology fellowship at Mount Sinai Health System in New York, N.Y.

Anderson is board certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a fellow of the Society of Surgical Oncology. She is a member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, the American College of Surgeons, and the Society of Surgical Oncology.

Anderson has also participated in numerous research projects and has been published multiple times in major medical journals.
