We are committed to comprehensive and compassionate cancer care


Educate clinicians and the public at large about the multidisciplinary approach to comprehensive, compassionate cancer care with a specific focus on oncoplastic surgery.


A world where the best possible surgical and cosmetic outcomes are accessible to all cancer patients, from surgeons who receive the most advanced training no matter where they are.

Our Story

The School of Oncoplastic Surgery (SOS), was founded in 2007 by Gail Lebovic, MD, with a grant from the Mary Kay Foundation. Widely regarded as the leading oncoplastic surgery program, SOS focuses on a multidisciplinary and practical “hands-on” approach to help surgeons develop the skills to remove cancer in conjunction with aesthetic techniques in order to reconstruct the breast at the time of cancer removal. SOS is proud to have trained more than 1,000 surgeons since its inception, who touch the lives of more than 200,000 women annually, which on an exponential level, comes out to about 2 million women treated.

In late 2019, the organization shifted into The Society of Oncoplastic Surgery, 501(c)(3) non-profit, with a broader mission  to educate clinicians and the public at large about oncoplastic surgery.
