Elizabeth Campbell & Breast Cancer


Tina VanDenvander
Patient: Elizabeth Campbell, Montgomery Village, MD

Location: Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center

Service: Breast Cancer

Doctor: Paul Thambi, MD

Elizabeth Campbell had been free of breast cancer for nearly 12 years and diligently scheduled her annual follow-up appointments. After breaking her leg in fall 2015, she was shocked to learn that cancer had returned.

Campbell, 56, of Montgomery Village, Md., turned to Adventist HealthCare’s integrated health system for cancer care. During her treatment at the Shady Grove Adventist Aquilino Cancer Center in Rockville, she began experiencing severe back pain. Her oncologist, Paul Thambi, MD, recommended an MRI, which showed a spinal compression fracture and tumor. Campbell was then referred to Amin Amini, MD, a neurosurgeon and medical director of Adventist HealthCare’s Neurosciences Program. In December, Dr. Amini performed surgery to correct the fracture and remove the tumor.
