Samaritan welcomes breast surgeon
Samaritan Medical Group Breast Center — Corvallis recently welcomed breast surgeon Danielle Bertoni, who specializes in breast surgical oncology. She joins David Faddis and Christina Lee at the nationally accredited breast center.
Bertoni earned a bachelor’s degree from Boston University Sargent College, a master’s in public health at Boston University School of Public Health and a medical degree from University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. She completed residency training at Stanford University Hospital and Medical Center, and fellowship in breast surgical oncology at Stanford University Hospital and Medical Center.
As a professor of surgery at Yale School of Medicine, Bertoni’s research focused on improving care and outcomes for patients with breast cancer.
She uses breast conservation techniques for successful cosmetic results, performing nipple-sparing mastectomies, a wide range of breast biopsies, as well as treating benign conditions and managing high-risk patients.
Bertoni’s mother, grandmother, aunt and cousins have all had breast cancer, and that inspired her to become a breast surgeon.
She is accepting new patients and can be reached by calling 541-768-1252.
