Extensive Research Description

As a breast surgical oncologist, Dr. Horowitz maintains a busy clinical practice treating patients across the spectrum of breast diseases from benign to diagnosed breast cancer. She provides evaluation, education and surgical care to patients and follows them through their treatment. She is committed to the education and mentoring of medical students, residents and fellows in her clinical practice as well as in the operating room. She spends two dedicated months with her breast fellow providing instruction in patient evaluation, disease diagnosis and surgical techniques as well as providing mentorship in breast cancer research. Dr. Horowitz actively participates in clinical trial accruals, and is particularly committed to improving the quality of care for patients. She was instrumental in developing the patient education materials currently and routinely used in The Breast Center-Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven.  This breast cancer handbook is a key component of the quality of care initiative and is used throughout the Center in surgery, medical oncology and radiation therapy. Dr. Horowitz has collaborated with her colleagues on several publications which have had significant impact in the field of breast cancer. She is particularly interested in the correlation between imaging and pathological findings, especially as it informs surgical decision making.
