Abigail M. Tremelling, MD, is a fellowship-trained breast surgeon who approaches cancer care with a keen awareness of the importance of working with a multidisciplinary team to provide superior care to her patients. While treating both benign and malignant breast disease, Abigail recognizes the value in collaborating with a team of experts from a variety of specialized fields to deliver personalized treatment.

Dr. Tremelling treats every patient as she would treat her own family members. “To heal someone through the art of surgery is a great honor, and to care for someone during their battle with cancer is an even greater privilege.” Her experience with specialized techniques enables her to tailor her surgical approach to specific patient needs. “I’m passionate about giving my patients a personalized experience. I enjoy educating them about their treatment plan and I’m grateful for the partnerships I develop with them over the course of their care.”

Dr. Tremelling draws inspiration from the overwhelming strength of her patients. “Oftentimes, patients undergo a combination of surgery and therapies requiring a lengthy treatment journey that lends itself to physical and emotional stress. Compassion is central to my patient care philosophy while high quality care and patient comfort are my top priorities.”

Dr. Tremelling is highly skilled in minimally invasive advanced surgical techniques. She specializes in hidden scar surgery, including nipple sparing mastectomy, the use of the latest wireless localization technology for performing partial mastectomies and excisional breast biopsies, and nipple duct excision.

In her free time, Dr. Tremelling enjoys traveling, DIY projects, and spending time with family, friends, and her dog.
