Sarah Shubeck is a board-certified surgeon who specializes in breast surgery, with expertise in treating patients with breast cancer and benign breast disease.

Her research has been published in such peer-reviewed journals as Cancer, Annals of Surgery, JAMA Surgery, and Annals of Surgical Oncology.
