Dr. Cristiano Boneti

The Founder of Cancer Institute of America

Dr. Cristiano Boneti, MD, FACS has dedicated his entire career to breast cancer patients. He offers a total of 18 years of medical training, including board certification in Plastic Surgery, General Surgery, and Fellowship training in diseases of the breast. He also trained with national and international authorities in the field, giants in the field of breast cancer such as Dr. Suzanne Klimberg, and the nationally and internationally recognized Dr. Luis Vasconez, who have all been mentors and have transferred their knowledge to Dr. Boneti during his training.


It was based on the knowledge acquired from these surgeons who lead the respective specialties of breast oncology and plastic surgery into the current state of breast care that Dr. Boneti personified the best of both specialties in a single and talented surgeon.
