Dr. Ranjana Chaterji joins Northern Westchester Surgical Services (NWSS) after having successfully completed her Oncological Breast Fellowship at Northern Westchester Hospital’s very own Institute of Aesthetic Surgery and Medicine.
Dr. Chaterji graduated with a BS in Biology from The Pennsylvania State University, received an MS in Physiology and Biophysics from Georgetown University, and then went on to receive her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine where she also received the Dr. Thomas M. Rowland, Jr. Scholarship for Academic Excellence. She completed her general surgery residency, where she was chief resident at Mercy Suburban Hospital in Norristown, PA.
Dr. Ranjana Chaterji has participated in many publications, presentations, and abstracts throughout her years as a physician and will continue to support research and education through the Breast Institute at Northern Westchester Hospital where she is establishing her practice. During her Oncological Breast Fellowship, Dr. Chaterji worked alongside Dr. Karen Arthur along with Drs. Anthony Cahan, Michael Rosenberg, David Palaia, and Philip Bonanno. Having been exposed to the patients of NWSS as well as the Northern Westchester Hospital environment, Dr. Chaterji wastes no time in jumping right in, as she has already been working with the staff and physicians.
