Maureen Chung takes reins as medical director of Southcoast's Breast Care Program

...
FALL RIVER - Dr. Maureen Chung, a renowned surgeon with an extensive background in research, training and patient care, has joined Southcoast Physicians Group as medical director of its Breast Care Program. Chung, with offices in Fall River and Dartmouth, is performing surgery at Charlton Memorial Hospital. She said she joined Southcoast because its "culture of caring" was in line with her own thinking and goals. Chung said Southcoast "doesn't just focus on the disease, but the patient. That's a culture that's really attractive." With a friendly down-to-earth demeanor, Chung was a revered breast surgeon at Women & Infants Hospital and Rhode Island Hospital. She previously served as program director of the Breast Disease Fellowship at Women & Infants Hospital, and was also on the Board of Directors of the Rhode Island Breast Cancer Coalition. Most recently, Chung served on the West Coast, as the director of the Margie Petersen Breast Center at Saint John's Health Center, as well as the director of the Breast Oncology Fellowship Program and the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Breast Cancer Research Program at John Wayne Cancer Institute in Santa Monica, Calif. On the West Coast, Chung spent a lot of time doing research, writing and teaching residents. She looked at patient care on a global scale, rather than seeing patients on a one-on-one basis. "I really missed looking after patients," Chung said. Chung, who grew up in Canada, said being a doctor was always her dream. "I've always wanted to be a surgeon. I never wanted to be anything else," Chung said. "I love the operating room." Chung wanted to return to this area where breast care, surgeons and technologies are needed more than on the West Coast. Since she joined Southcoast about a month ago, she's spent a lot of her time seeing patients and caring for them in the operating room. She's also been redesigning the Dartmouth program to offer a better flow for patient care. Chung's clinical interests include the impact of screening mammography, and how to gain a greater reach into the community and spread awareness to women on the importance of screening. In her research, Chung said the majority of women who die of breast cancer have not had a mammogram ever or in recent years. She said mammograms are suggested every year for women in their 40s, 50s, and to the age of 65, then every two years. Chung is also interested in contemporary surgical treatment of breast cancer. She believes that patient education, disease prevention and evidence based treatments are equally important and that care should be personalized for each patient. Page 2 of 2 - Chung is working to bring additional technology to the Southcoast Breast Center, which will include 3D breast imaging. Clinical research and a teaching program are also slated to begin at Southcoast. "I'm excited to be here," Chung said. "I think I'm already making a difference." Chung attended McGill University in Montreal, Canada, where she earned her undergraduate and master's degree in science. She received her medical degree from McGill University and her doctorate degree from Brown University. Chung completed a general surgery residency at McGill University and a surgical oncology fellowship at Brown Medical School in Providence. Board certified in general surgery, Chung is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Chung is a member of numerous surgical organizations, including the Society of University Surgeons, the Society of Surgical Oncology, the American Society of Breast Surgeons, the New England Surgical Society, the American Association for Cancer Research and the Rhode Island Medical Women's Association. A leader in the field of surgical oncology, Chung has published extensively in medical journals and textbooks, and has been interviewed by local, national and international media. Chung has an office at the Southcoast Center for Women's Health, 300 B Faunce Corner Road, Dartmouth, and an office in the Melcor Building, 191 Bedford St., Fall River. Appointments can be made by calling the Dartmouth site at 508-973-1020.
