    Dr. Mehra Golshan is the medical director for international oncology programs at the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center and is the Dr. Abdul Mohsen and Sultana Al-Tuwaijri Distinguished Chair in Surgical Oncology, the youngest physician who has been bestowed this honor at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). He is also the director of the Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship at the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center and an associate professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School.

    Dr. Golshan received his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. He completed a residency in general surgery at Rush-Presbyterian-Saint Luke's Medical Center and a fellowship at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. He is board certified in surgery.

    The author of over 80 peer-reviewed publications and recipient of funding from the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Golshan focuses his clinical research on minimizing the extent of surgery required for women with breast cancer through the use of neoadjuvant therapies and novel intra-operative techniques. He is studying the use of intra-operative diagnostic biomarkers and tools in BWH’s Advanced Multimodality Image Guided Operative Suite to determine if they can identify and remove residual tumor with the aim of improving patient outcomes and reducing re-excision rates. Dr. Golshan is also a leading researcher on tailoring the extent of surgery and therapy for women with early-stage breast cancer. Dr. Golshan has been named one of America’s Top Doctors by Castle Connolly.
