About the Provider

Kristen Fernandez, MD, is director of the Breast Center at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center. She is a board-certified surgeon exclusively specializing in the treatment of breast disease and as a former Susan G. Komen Breast Surgery Fellow, is one of just a few surgeons nationwide to have furthered her surgical training with a clinical fellowship in breast disease.

Dr. Fernandez has extensive experience with minimally invasive breast biopsy procedures as well as state-of-the-art treatment options including breast conserving surgery, intraoperative radiation therapy and accelerated partial breast radiation.

At the Breast Center, Dr. Fernandez enjoys helping women understand the treatment options available to them and works collaboratively with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan. She is an avid proponent of regular mammograms for detecting cancer early when it is easier to treat.

Dr. Fernandez was named a 2019 "Top Doc" by Baltimore magazine for breast surgery.
