About Dr. Akbari
Dr. Akbari


Dr. Stephanie Akbari received her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania. She then went on to do her residency in surgery at Harvard’s New England Deaconess Hospital. She is certified by the American Board of Surgery. She is also a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, and has previously served on committees of both of those organizations. Since 2005 she has been recognized as one of the region’s “Top Docs” in breast surgery by Washingtonian Magazine.

Dr. Akbari was the first dedicated breast surgeon in Northern Virginia and has been practicing in the area since 2002. She has been a pioneer in breast cancer surgery, continually integrating new technology into treatments she offers her patients. She was the first breast surgeon in the area to become certified in breast ultrasound, the first to incorporate partial breast irradiation into her practice, and the first to perform office based minimally invasive breast biopsies. In 2007, she established the first nationally accredited breast center in the Washington, DC region. She believes in personalized care and strives to put together the best treatment protocol individually tailored to meet the needs of each patient and their families.
