Dr. Savalia Presents at American Society of Breast Surgeons Annual Meeting

USC-Hoag Fellows 2014-595 (2)

Dr. Savalia recently presented at the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBS) annual meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada. The University of Southern California (USC)/Hoag Breast Program, with which Dr. Savalia is involved, played a major role in this year’s event. Hoag medical staff involvement and presentations included:

Melvin J. Silverstein, M.D., the Gross Family Endowed Chair in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery, Director of the Hoag Breast Center and Clinical Professor of Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, kicked off the annual meeting with a rousing discussion of whether or not ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) should be considered cancer. An international expert in this field, having written more than 200 papers and book chapters on DCIS as well as edited the only two textbooks devoted completely to DCIS, he was the ideal speaker for this highly controversial, and newsworthy topic. Dr. Silverstein also served as the co-chair of the Oncoplastic Breast Surgery Course with Nashville breast surgeon, Pat Whitworth, MD.

Dr. Savalia, a board-certified plastic surgeon and Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, participated as a faculty member for the Oncoplastic Course. He taught the details of the “Split Reduction Excision” for breast cancer, a procedure developed at Hoag.

Hoag Breast Center continues to be a national leader in advanced surgical techniques for breast cancer, including oncoplastic breast conservation and intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT), as well as a technological leader in breast cancer screening with state-of-the-art offerings, including Breast Tomosynthesis (3D Mammography) at multiple imaging locations and Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound (AWBUS) at the flagship Hoag Breast Center Newport Beach.

What Dr. Savalia's Patients Are Saying


Dr. Savalia is a very gifted surgeon and has true artistic ability. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Savalia for any type of plastic surgery. He truly exceeded my expectations. I feel very fortunate to have worked with him and his team and if I ever have any need for a plastic surgeon in the future he will be my first choice.
