Carolyn Parma, MD

“I am deeply committed to building a lifelong partnership with each patient in their fight against breast cancer, by providing high-quality surgical care, as well as emotional healing and support. By staying up-to-date with the latest treatments, I offer the most advanced techniques in breast surgery, including nipple sparing mastectomy and intraoperative radiation therapy. With my unique training in oncoplastic techniques, my surgical efforts focus on helping patients maintain a sense of physical wholeness.”
