Surgical Team

Ayemoethu Ma, MD, Director of Breast Surgery

Karina Powell, PAC

We’re here to help with all breast-related concerns, including breast cancer. From diagnosis and treatment to emotional support and follow-up care, the Breast Clinic brings together experts who will work closely with you every step of the way. That includes developing a treatment plan that considers your individual needs and wishes.
Your care team may include physicians, nurses, radiologists, surgeons, pathologists, pharmacists, social workers, and our patient navigator. We will provide you with the newest therapies, keep you informed, and offer a range of support throughout your journey. We collaborate with doctors outside of the system to deliver complete care.
