About Gerlinde Tynan, MD

Gerlinde S. Tynan, MD, believes in crafting individualized treatment plans for each patient, based on national guidelines, while taking into account their particular pathology, risk factors and personal wishes. She collaborates with both medical and radiation oncologists, as well as other cancer experts, to provide multidisciplinary care for breast cancer patients. She believes this approach is the gold standard for patients and ensures her patients receive the highest level of care.

Dr. Tynan offers the full spectrum of breast cancer care; ranging from supervising the Breast High Risk Clinic and the Lymphedema Prevention Program, to offering Multidisciplinary Patient Consultations with Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, and the Nurse Navigator. Dr. Tynan’s operative techniques include oncoplastic lumpectomies, sentinel lymph node biopsy, axillary dissections and infusion port placements. She performs traditional mastectomies, as well as skin and nipple-sparing mastectomies in conjunction with plastic surgery for reconstruction. She presents all new breast cancer patients at the twice monthly Multidisciplinary Cancer Conference, comprised of Breast Surgery, Breast Radiology, Medical and Radiation Oncology, Physical Therapy, Nurse Navigation, Genetics, and Research. This allows the entire team to have valuable input on the care of the patient.

Dr. Tynan is a board-certified general surgeon specializing in surgical disease of the breast, mainly breast cancer. She received a Bachelor of Science with honors in Molecular Biology from the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming. After graduating from the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, Washington, she completed her general surgery residency at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. Dr. Tynan has been specializing in breast surgery since 2009 and built several comprehensive Breast Programs, both in Arizona and here in Colorado, with two achieving NAPBC accreditation under her leadership. Dr. Tynan is an active member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons and a fellow in the American College of Surgeons.

When not treating patients, Dr. Tynan enjoys spending time in the outdoors with her husband and two young sons.
