About me

Daria Abolghasemi, DO, is a fellowship-trained, board-certified breast surgeon specializing in breast surgical oncology at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center. She is a graduate of Fordham University and earned her medical degree from the New York Institute of Technology-College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Abolghasemi treats a wide variety of patients with breast issues including those with benign conditions, patients at high risk for breast cancer, and patients with breast cancer. 

She was inspired early on by her mother’s journey with breast cancer, leading her to pursue a career in breast surgery. She believes in providing all patients comprehensive and compassionate, high-quality care by applying evidenced-based and interdisciplinary approaches to the treatment of breast disease. She is trained in the most up-to-date surgical procedures including nipple-sparing mastectomies and wireless lumpectomies. She is also passionate about mitigating disparities in breast cancer treatment. 

Certifications and associations
Dr. Abolghasemi is a member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, the Society of Surgical Oncology, the American College of Surgeons, the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons, and the American Osteopathic Association. She has been published in a number of peer-reviewed journals and is currently working on a research study regarding racial disparities in breast reconstruction rates.

    This was the first time meeting this doctor and she was wonderful. She knew my case and answered questions very easily. She got back to me about one concern later that afternoon. I was surprised that she called me herself with the answer.
