    Overview

    Antoinette Sakaris, MD, is the director of gynecological oncology at South Shore University Hospital. She is double board-certified with a specialized focus in treating gynecologic cancer and complex gynecologic issues using the latest techniques in minimally invasive and robotic surgery. Dr. Sakaris always had an interest in medicine since childhood. “I developed a passion for women’s health in medical school and chose a specialty that really challenged me.” Before joining Northwell in 2008, Dr. Sakaris graduated from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She completed her obstetrics and gynecology residency and fellowship in gynecologic oncology at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and an externship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She’s currently the program director of the advanced female pelvic surgery fellowship at South Shore University Hospital and assistant professor at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, where she’s pursing a master's degree in education. A dedicated women’s health advocate, Dr. Sakaris participates in regional cancer awareness and fundraising activities, and often gives community lectures. She’s also involved in global relief efforts, including a mission to Haiti to provide education, surgical care and screening for cervical cancer. Dr. Sakaris is a proud recipient of the Northwell Health Physician Partners annual Patients’ Choice Award for outstanding patient satisfaction. She looks at the whole picture when it comes to health care. “It’s not just about treating the patient's condition; it's about their overall well-being,” she says. “For people with cancer, we support them through their journey as they live with, through and beyond their disease.” Collaboration is also important to Dr. Sakaris. She works closely with a team of specialists to create tailored treatment plans. She’s also committed to research, focusing on cervical cancer prevention—including the use of cancer-related vaccinations—as well as reducing the risk of ovarian cancer among premenopausal women with inherited susceptibility mutations. “I love coming to work each day,” Dr. Sakaris says. “Being able to help people and make a positive impact on their lives is truly rewarding.”
