Milford Regional Medical Center recently welcomed Diana Caragacianu, MD, FACS, as the new medical director of The Breast Center at Milford Regional.
Dr. Caragacianu is not only a respected breast and endocrine surgeon from the prestigious Georgetown University Hospital, where she served as the site director of the breast program at MedStar Lafayette Center in Washington, D.C., she is a leader in high-risk screening and genetics. Her advanced training includes fellowships in surgical oncology at the National Cancer Institute and breast surgery at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School. She further enhanced her skills with specialized international training in intra-operative radiation for breast cancer and oncoplastic surgery.
Dr. Caragacianu’s approach to breast health has always been to build relationships with her patients and earn their trust. She is passionate about partnering with her patients, sharing her expertise and knowledge to help them proactively take part in deciding what is best for them. Because of this, Dr. Caragacianu’s glowing reputation as an advocate for patients precedes her arrival at Milford Regional as does her commanding knowledge of breast and endocrine health.
“There is so much beauty in being a source of strength and hope during a patient’s initial diagnosis of cancer, recovery from surgery, or even through a benign process, and continuously being part of many patients’ lives years later to celebrate their life and survivorship,” Dr. Caragacianu said.
Under her leadership, patients at Milford Regional’s nationally accredited Breast Center can expect an individualized, multidisciplinary team approach for all screening, diagnostic, high-risk evaluation and cancer treatment needs and, when necessary, a seamless collaboration with Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center at Milford Regional.
