Get to know Breast Surgeon Dr. Andrea Madrigrano, who serves the population of Chicago, Illinois.

Andrea Madrigrano, MD, FACS, is a breast surgeon at Rush University Surgeons, and is affiliated with Rush University Medical Center. Dr. Andrea Madrigrano has been in practice for over fourteen years, and in that time has already become known as one of Chicago’s most reputable breast surgeons. Her career in medicine began in 2001, when she graduated from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago. This was also the location of her residency, prior to a fellowship being completed at Stanford Hospital in California.

Board certified in General Surgery, Dr. Madrigrano has become famed as a specialist in breast surgery, including breast reconstruction, lymph node biopsies and mastectomies. She provides surgical treatments for a wide range of conditions, but these commonly include benign and malignant neoplasm of the breast, along with other breast disorders.

Dr. Madrigrano is known for her caring and compassionate attitude, and also for her commitment to keeping abreast with all of the latest innovations and advances in breast surgery. She does this through her active memberships with professional organizations, and is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

A breast surgeon is trained to evaluate and manage patients with breast pain, benign lumps and cysts and abnormal mammograms, in addition to breast cancer. It is important to realize that the majority of benign (non-cancerous) breast conditions do not require surgery. The use of breast ultrasound for evaluation and for procedure guidance is an integral part of my practice, and minimally-invasive as well as non-operative procedures are often used where historically surgery might have been the only option.
