Lisa R.P. Spiguel, M.D., is an associate professor with the University of Florida department of surgery in the division of general surgery’s surgical oncology service. She serves as the Section Chief of Breast surgery in the department of surgery, and clinical Director of the UF Health Breast Center.
Spiguel’s clinical focus is on the surgical care of breast cancer and benign breast disease, the assessment of high risk breast cancer patients and overall breast health. She offers the full spectrum of surgical breast care, including breast-conservation surgery, nipple- and skin-sparing mastectomies, modified radical mastectomies and axillary surgery. She uses an oncoplastic technique to rearrange breast tissue for a natural form after breast conservation surgery.
Prior to joining UF, she completed the Lynn Sage Breast Surgery Fellowship at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Prior to her fellowship, Spiguel trained in general surgery at the University of Chicago Medical Center and earned her medical degree at Wayne State University in Detroit.
