Biography

Dr. Donna-Marie Manasseh is the Director of Breast Surgery at the Maimonides Breast Cancer Center in Brooklyn, NY. Prior to joining the Maimonides team, Dr. Manasseh was the Co-Director of the Women's Breast Center and the Chief of Breast Surgery at Stamford Hospital. Under her leadership, the Women's Breast Center at Stamford Hospital became the first center to be accredited by the American College of Surgeons' National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. Dr. Manasseh completed her general surgery residency at NewYork-Presbyterian and her breast surgical oncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Manasseh is a strong advocate of empowering women by educating them about breast health and disease, in the hopes that this education will lead to earlier detection of breast disease and a better chance of being cured. She has published several chapters on breast disease and has co-authored a textbook relating to breast disease and evaluation. She is also a member of several societies which promote breast health, including the American College of Surgeons, the American Society of Breast Surgeons, the National Consortium of Breast Centers and the American Society of Breast Disease, and remains a surveyor for the American College of Surgeons National Accreditation Program for Breast Cancers, whose goal is to evaluate breast centers across the country to ensure they are providing quality care to women in their communities. Dr. Manasseh has participated in many conferences and speaking engagements to promote breast health and help women make the right health decisions. She has been the recipient of several awards, most notably the Magida Award from the Fairfield County Medical Association and the Rosenthal Family Foundation, given to a physician who has shown a notable capacity for patient treatment and care and a special sensitivity to patient-physician relationships. She was also recognized by the American Cancer Society and was awarded the Star of Hope Award, as well as the American Red Cross Hero Award in Medicine. Dr. Manasseh is included in the Castle-Connolly Guide to Top Doctors in the New York Metro Region. Dr. Manasseh's life interests include: Photography, Pen collecting, Chess and Scuba.
