Double Mastectomy

Dr. Denise Mammolitos, MD
Breast Surgery, Surgical Oncology

Dr. Mammolito found a love of the health care field at a young age when she volunteered for an ambulance corp. She went on to complete her medical degree, general surgery residency, and surgical oncology fellowship at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark, N.J.

While the multidisciplinary approach to cancer patients is what attracted Dr. Mammolito to surgical oncology during her residency, it wasn’t until she started her practice that she discovered a passion for breast surgery. “I really enjoy taking care of the breast cancer patients,” she says. “I felt that I was going to have the biggest effect on patients there.”
