Dr. Catherine S. Tucker recently joined the staff of Holy Family Hospital and Steward Medical Group as a dedicated breast surgeon.

Tucker is a board-certified general surgeon and fellowship trained in breast diseases.

“As a fellowship-trained, dedicated breast surgeon, Dr. Tucker’s extensive experience will bring the latest and most advanced breast care to our patients, as we expand women’s health services and build a comprehensive women’s health center to serve the Merrimack Valley,” said Holy Family Hospital President Craig Jesiolowksi.

Tucker has specialized in neurosurgery, general surgery and breast surgery at NYU Medical Center, Tufts New England Medical Center, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard School of Public Health, Winchester Hospital and North Shore Medical Center. Before joining Holy Family Hospital, she worked for more than 10 years at Hallmark Health Medical Associates.

“Many patients come to me with a new finding of a lump, abnormal mammogram or diagnosis, and they have fears about their future. Knowing this, I spend time with each woman giving her my recommendations and reassurance, which allows her to be able to leave my office feeling calmer and confident that she has a plan moving forward,” said Tucker.

Tucker holds specialty certifications in breast ultrasound and stereotactic biopsies and ultrasound accreditation from the AIUM Ultrasound Practice Accreditation Council. She received her medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston and completed a surgical residency at Tufts-New England Medical Center. She completed her fellowship in breast diseases at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Faulkner Breast Center in Boston. She is a member of the American College of Surgeons and American Society of Breast Surgeons.

Tucker’s office is located on Holy Family Hospital’s Methuen campus, 70 East St. The number for appointments is 978-682-2310.
