Wednesday, February 7, 2018

Greenwich, CT (Feb. 7, 2018) – Alyssa Gillego, MD, a fellowship-trained breast surgeon who specializes in breast cancer treatment, has joined the Breast Center at Greenwich Hospital.

“Dr. Gillego is the perfect combination of being well-trained, experienced and compassionate. As a resident of Greenwich, she looks forward to participating in hospital and community events,” said Barbara Ward, MD, medical director of the Breast Center. “We are fortunate to have her on board.”

The Breast Center at Greenwich Hospital offers comprehensive screening, diagnosis and treatment of benign breast conditions and breast cancer.
