Frequently Asked Questions
Last year we shared that research from Dr. Shelly’s lab and we are proud of the recently announced research efforts by Dr. Landercasper. Jeffrey Landercasper, MD, FACS, has been associated with the GHS Department of Surgery and the Breast Center for 33 years. He is transitioning from clinical practice to “outcome research” in 2015 for Gundersen Medical Foundation on behalf of the Center for Breast Care. Dr. Landercasper will pursue breast cancer research funded with proceeds from the annual Steppin' Out in Pink event. His main research interests focus on identification and correction of gaps in the quality of care provided to breast cancer patients. Dr. Landercasper’s primary role will be aiding the American Society of Breast Surgeon’s national quality initiatives, with special emphasis on lowering the rate of secondary breast cancer operations after initial breast conserving surgery. A secondary role will be helping to launch a statewide quality collaborative in Wisconsin to improve breast surgical care.
