Nora Jaskowiak, MD, is a well-regarded professor and surgeon focusing on the surgical management of breast cancer, along with endocrine surgery, thyroid cancer, and parathyroid disorders.

She is surgical head of the University of Chicago Breast Center, which is dedicated to all women's breast health needs. The Center offers each woman a comprehensive care plan whether they are self- or physician-referred, or seeking a second opinion.

Dr. Jaskowiak has also performed research under the supervision of Ralph Weichselbaum, MD, investigating how blocking the action of vascular endothelial cell growth factor, a substance that encourages the growth of new blood vessels, can dramatically increase the anti-tumor effects of radiation therapy.
