Dr. Catherine Dang has been with Cedars-Sinai for 16 years. In her role as a breast surgeon, she helps cancer patients get back to living their lives. She also acts as a mentor for other female medical students and residents who are interested in pursuing surgery. 

Like many female surgeons, Dr. Dang faced several obstacles during her career, including being told she would never make it and feeling pressure to decide between a career and a family. 

“These things made me determined to prove people wrong,” she says. “I love what I do, and currently the biggest hurdle is balancing work and family. I have three kids and a husband who is also a busy surgeon, but we make it work and I have no regrets about choosing a career in surgery.”
