Meet Dr. Katherina Calvillo

Dr. Katherina Calvillo, the founder of New England Breast and Wellness, is a fellowship-trained breast cancer surgeon with nearly 20 years of experience at Harvard Medical School and the Breast Center at Dana-Farber/ Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center. She provides personalized, intimate care to her patients, ensuring they feel physically and emotionally supported through their battle against breast cancer.

What Our Patients Say

Finding Dr. Kathy Calvillo was such a gift to me. I am a long term breast cancer survivor and recently had a concern about a possible recurrence due to something that appeared different under one of my implants. Dr. Calvillo not only saw me right away for an examination, she then arranged the necessary screening tests expeditiously as I was about to leave Boston for the winter season. Over those three days she was in touch with me and was reassuring and comforting in such a manner that helped put my mind at ease. Her innate ability to make me feel heard and supported is indeed a testimony to her devotion to her patients. It all turned out well for me, and having that knowledge before I left Boston was totally because of Dr. Calvillo. I heartedly recommend Dr. Calvillo as a breast surgeon with incredible skills to deliver medicine and compassionate care for her patients.

Dr. Calvillo is amazing! A cancer diagnoses and the subsequent treatment is one of the hardest situations a person can go through. What is often overlooked, however, is the quality of life after such treatment. Dr. Calvillo will guide you through your journey with care and compassion. Her surgical skills, both in terms of removing the cancer and aesthetic outcome, are unmatched compared to the 3 other surgeons we met with, all of whom were at top rated hospitals here in MA. My wife had a double mastectomy and you can't even see the scars. AMAZING!

The diagnosis of breast cancer is very traumatic. Dr. Kathy Calvillo is a blessing. She is extremely knowledgeable and down to earth. She very clearly outlined my options in simple terms, with great compassion. She truly cares about me as a person and spent much time with me ensuring that I understood everything she recommended. I took great comfort in knowing I came to the right doctor. No question was too small and I quickly felt that we were on the same team. Her positive and uplifting attitude turned despair into hope. I absolutely feel totally confident my treatment is leading me to be cancer-free. Anxiety turned into confidence that as a team we are fighting my cancer successfully. I very highly recommend Dr. Calvillo without hesitation.

I got introduced to Kathy at a very difficult time of my life. She walked me through it with kindness and grace. I really appreciated her expertise in this field as a breast surgeon/specialist. She answered my questions patiently, she read my information and gave me succinct feedback. I am forever grateful for that.

Anyone would be wise and fortunate to have Dr. Calvillo care for them as soon as they are diagnosed with cancer. She will help to alleviate the unbearable stress a cancer diagnosis brings to a patient and their family and make it a much less daunting experience.

Breast Cancer

Treatments & Diagnosis

Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer amongst women in the United States, second only to skin cancer. It originates in the milk ducts or the lobules of the breasts, and then it may spread to other parts of the breast or even other organs outside the breasts. Because of the commonality of breast cancer, all women should perform regular breast self-exams and seek regular breast cancer screenings.

Thanks to advanced research and increasing awareness, breast cancer survival rates have increased considerably in recent years. Early detection significantly improves your prognosis, so you must educate yourself on the early signs and symptoms of breast cancer. Please contact a Boston breast cancer specialist for breast cancer screening if you have a lump on the breast tissues and other unexplained changes on your skin and breast.


Same-Day Genetic Testing

Getting to The Cause

Breast cancer screening and testing are essential components of risk mitigation. Everyone should go for regular screening, but those with a high risk of breast cancer should undergo a mammogram once every six to twelve months. We use the most advanced technologies to diagnose breast cancer, such as traditional mammograms, digital breast tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, and breast MRI. After breast cancer screening, we may perform a biopsy to investigate the suspicious breast cancer tissues under a microscope.

Surgical Procedures

Effective & Life-changing

Breast cancer surgery is the most common treatment option for patients with breast cancer, usually accompanied by chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or hormone therapy. Breast cancer surgery involves using numerous techniques to remove malignant tumors and cancer cells. If you’re at the early stages of breast cancer, the surgeon may perform a lumpectomy to remove the cancer cells while preserving most of your breast. However, if cancer progresses significantly, you may need a mastectomy or double mastectomy.
