Breast Surgeon Catherine Tucker, MD, FACS, Joins Holy Family Hospital
Methuen, MA – Fellowship-trained breast surgeon Catherine Tucker, MD, FACS has joined the staff of Holy Family Hospital (HFH) and Steward Medical Group as a dedicated breast surgeon. She is a board-certified general surgeon and fellowship trained in breast diseases.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Tucker join our surgical team,” said Craig Jesiolowski, FACHE, president of Holy Family Hospital. “As a fellowship-trained, dedicated breast surgeon, Dr. Tucker’s extensive experience will bring the latest and most advanced breast care to our patients, as we expand women’s health services and build a comprehensive women’s health center to serve the Merrimack Valley.
Dr. Tucker is a leading breast surgeon in the Northeast and has specialized in neurosurgery, general surgery and breast surgery at NYU Medical Center, Tufts-New England Medical Center, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Harvard School of Public Health, Winchester Hospital, and North Shore Medical Center.

“I am looking forward to building relationships with my patients”, said Dr. Tucker. “Many patients come to me with a new finding of a lump, abnormal mammogram or diagnosis, and they have fears about their future. Knowing this, I spend time with each woman giving her my recommendations and reassurance, which allows her to be able to leave my office feeling calmer and confident that she has a plan moving forward.”
Dr. Tucker holds specialty certifications in breast ultrasound, stereotactic biopsies, and holds ultrasound accreditation from the AIUM Ultrasound Practice Accreditation Council. She received her medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, and completed a surgical residency at Tufts-New England Medical Center.
