Dr Jacqueline Tsai is a board certified general surgeon who completed a breast surgical oncology fellowship at Stanford and specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of all breast diseases and cancer. She is a breast surgical oncologist at Stanford Women's Cancer Center and has experience and interest in all types of breast surgery, including breast conservation, oncoplastic surgery and nipple sparing procedures to provide optimal cosmetic outcomes for all patients. Prior to joining the team at Stanford, she practiced in New York City at Weill Cornell Medical College and New York Presbyterian Hospital in Queens in the field of breast surgery. Dr Tsai strives to provide compassionate, expert, evidence-based care for all patients. She works closely with plastic and reconstructive surgeons to help patients achieve both the optimal oncologic surgery as well as the desired cosmetic outcomes that patients desire. She is also involved in clinical trials that aim to improve diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for patients with breast cancer.
My research interests are focused on improving breast cancer surgeries. I am interested in novel techniques in surgery to improve cosmetic outcomes, minimize surgical re-excisions and possible augmented reality technologies to enhance surgery.
LYMPHA Procedure for the Prevention of Lymphedema After Axillary Lymphadenectomy
Lymphedema is a chronic, progressive, and debilitating condition that occurs with disruption
or obstruction of the lymphatic system, which commonly occurs a result of breast cancer
therapy. The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of a low risk lymphatic
reconstruction procedure at the time of axillary lymph node dissection will reduce the risk
of developing lymphedema. Additionally, to determine if this procedure improves objective
outcomes of lymphedema and patient quality of life
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
