Biography

Dr. Lewin is a gynecologic oncologist and surgeon who specializes in caring for women with ovarian, endometrial, uterine, cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancers. She has developed a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team approach to screening, treatment and overall quality of care for women at high risk for ovarian cancer and those with gynecologic malignancies. After completing a fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Dr Lewin joined Columbia’s Gynecologic Oncology Division. Dr. Lewin is skilled in advanced, minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopic or robotic) as well as extensive debulking procedures to remove invasive cancer involving the bladder or bowel. Her areas of expertise include radical surgical cytoreductive operations for ovarian cancer, including upper abdominal and extended pelvic resections. Her special interests and research include novel treatment strategies for ovarian cancer and peritoneal surface malignancies: heated intraperitoneal chemoperfusion (HIPEC) and intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IP) in addition to traditional chemotherapy administration. She is regarded as a national educator on the subject of Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Syndrome (HBOC) as well as state-of-the-art treatment for advanced ovarian cancer. Dr. Lewin has lectured nationally and internationally on effective treatment strategies for women with gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). She has won numerous teaching and research awards, including the prestigious Society of Gynecologic Oncology’s (SGO) President’s Award. She has authored over a dozen articles and textbook chapters. Dr. Lewin was awarded the prestigious Physician of the Year award, and is instrumental in developing and directing the Woman to Woman Program which provides psychosocial support for women with gynecological cancers. She is a participating board member of numerous women’s health care organizations including Gilda’s Club and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
