Benjamin H. Finder, M.D.

Benjamin H. Finder, M.D. did his undergraduate studies at the University of Rochester and received his medical degree from the Georgetown University School of Medicine. He did a surgical internship at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City and completed a surgical residency at Georgetown University Medical Center. He is Board Certified in Surgery, and was recertified in 1989 and 1999. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and is also a member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.

He has a special interest in breast surgery and breast diseases, having performed over 3,000 minimally invasive stereotactic breast biopsies using a computer directed biopsy system. In addition he promotes breast conservation surgery (ie..lumpectomy) whenever feasible in those patients treated for breast cancer. More recent advances include the use of procedures in breast cancer treatment to minimize lymph node removal by the "sentinel node" technique - using a tracer to try to remove the fewest nodes possible - in patients undergoing breast cancer surgery. He works closely with Medical and Radiation Oncologists in those patients requiring treatment for any stage of breast cancer.
