Biography

David Euhus, M.D., joins the Department of Surgery as chief of breast surgery in the Division of Surgical Oncology. He comes to Johns Hopkins from University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center, where he was the Marilyn R. Corrigan Distinguished Chair in breast cancer surgery and co-director of the Mary L. Brown Breast Cancer Genetics and Risk Assessment Clinic in the Center for Breast Care.    

Dr. Euhus has dedicated his career to understanding breast cancer at the molecular level to determine the most effective treatments for it  and will continue this work at Johns Hopkins. His research has included using fine needle aspiration to evaluate DNA for acquired changes that lead to a higher risk of breast cancer, as well as examining the link between high blood glucose or higher body mass indexes and  breast cancer. His research on breast cancer genetics and defining biomarkers for breast cancer help define who should be tested for genetic risk of breast cancer and how to proceed upon finding a genetic link.

In addition to his special interest in the treatment of high-risk patients with genetic predisposition or familial history of breast cancer, Dr. Euhus specializes in breast surgery procedures that include nipple-sparing mastectomy and hidden incisions to reduce visible scarring.   

Dr. Euhus is a member of the Society of Surgical Oncology, the American Society of Breast Surgery and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
