Certified by the American Board of Surgery and a member of the Association of Women Surgeons, Dr. Sebastian is committed to the multidisciplinary coordination of breast health care and customizing treatment plans to the unique requirements of each patient.

Dr. Sebastian has been named Chairman of the Genetics Working Group of the American Society of Breast Surgeons. The Working Group advocates on behalf of patients for insurance companies to cover genetic testing. “One of the first initiatives of the Working Group, done in cooperation with the American Society for Clinical Oncology, was to survey physicians nationwide to assess how they incorporate genetic testing into their practice, and how they keep up to date. Based on survey results, we will design courses to help breast cancer specialists stay current with this rapidly changing area of cancer care.”
