Dr. Ryland J. Gore is a board certified, fellowship-trained surgeon specializing in breast surgical oncology. She has devoted her life and practice to women’s health and caring for
women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Gore prides herself on delivering compassionate care that is rooted in educating women and always promoting women’s empowerment despite a devastating diagnosis.
Dr. Gore was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. She knew since the age of 11 that she wanted to be a physician and realized her dream when she was accepted into Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. After graduating medical school in 2011, Dr. Gore began her general surgery residency in Chicago, Illinois in the integrated program at Rush University Medical Center and John H. Stroger Cook County Hospital. That experience served as an opportunity for Dr. Gore to not only become a sharp and well-trained surgeon, but to also develop and refine her surgical interests, which include management of surgical diseases, as well as educating others and speaking prolifically about disparities in surgical care and education. Wanting to continue her education after completing residency, Dr. Gore moved to Brooklyn, New York where she completed her breast surgical oncology fellowship training at Maimonides Medical Center. During this time, she was specially trained in how to treat breast cancer and other breast diseases from a multidisciplinary perspective. Upon finishing fellowship, Dr. Gore moved back home to Atlanta, Georgia to begin her career caring for the very community that helped raise her. She is currently an attending breast surgeon with Northside Hospital Health System.
In addition to her professional responsibilities, Dr. Gore is a newly-elected board member for Every Woman Works, Inc. and recently named chairwoman of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign. She is a highly sought after speaker, consultant and lecturer on breast cancer and breast health, as well as women’s empowerment topics
