Dr. Holwitt is a board-certified, fellowship-trained breast surgeon, with
sub-specialty training in breast surgical oncology. At age 36, she was
diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy and chemotherapy.
This unique situation makes her a more understanding doctor and an advocate
for all who look to her for treatment. She has walked in their shoes.
Most importantly, since her diagnosis, Dr. Holwitt is passionate about
spreading the word on the importance of early detection. She has been
actively involved in professional and community efforts to promote breast
health awareness and survivorship support.
Dr. Holwitt graduated cum laude from Colgate University and earned a medical
degree from Virginia Commonwealth University/Medical College of Virginia,
where she was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society.
During her residency, also at Virginia Commonwealth University, she was
elected Surgical Intern of the Year and won the Basic Science Research
Award. After completion of a general surgery residency, she did a Fellowship
in Breast Surgical Oncology at Washington University School of Medicine
in St. Louis. As a Fellow in breast surgical oncology, she was invited
to deliver two presentations at the 2008 American Society of Breast Surgeons
Meeting and was awarded the Best Scientific Presentation Award for manuscripts
that were published in the American Journal of Surgery in May 2009.
