Hands-on Clinical Rotation at the Aiello Breast Center, University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center, Baltimore, USA (September 2014 – October 2014)

The Aiello Breast Center is one of the two main units run by the University of Maryland and is headed by Dr. Cynthia Drogula, who is a practicing breast surgeon for over 15 years. This unit offers the state of the art care to breast cancer patients. This hands on experience broadened my skill set in the field of breast surgery and it was a good opportunity for me to realize the subtle differences in the management of breast cancer patients in India & USA. Working with the Chief of Plastic Surgery – Dr. Goldberg, also helped in picking up important tips regarding implant based and autologous reconstruction.
