    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Sarah Blair is a specialist in oncology surgery. She completed a fellowship in Surgical Oncology at City of Hope National Medical Center, where she was honored as the Terrell McElligot Surgical Oncology Fellow. She received advanced training in the surgical treatment of breast cancers, melanoma, sarcoma and other surgical tumors. She is certified by the American Board of General Surgery.

    Dr. Blair's emphasis is in the compassionate care of complicated cancer cases. She has a strong background and many years of experience in treating patients with cancer. She is involved in a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of breast cancer. She has extensive experience in cutting edge technologies such as sentinel node staging for breast cancer, melanoma, and other soft tissue tumors.

    In her research at UC San Diego, Dr. Blair is developing a method for using advanced imaging techniques to ensure that all the tumor cells are removed during a cancer surgery. The method will be used in the operating room, while a cancer surgery is in progress, to detect any cancer cells that may be present in samples of tissue taken from the edges of the surgical area. The ability to do this test while the patient is still under anesthesia will help make it possible for the surgeon to remove the tumor precisely, and the need for any additional surgery may be avoided.

    Research Overview
    Our research program centers on improved localization of non palpable breast tumors to reduce positive margins and second operations in breast conservation therapy. The ultimate goal is to remove all tumor cells from patients in one operation.
