About Dr Emilia Dauway
As a surgeon working in Gladstone for over 3 years, Dr. Dauway recognized a lack of resources for regional breast cancer patients. As a specialist in surgical oncology, she grew concerned about challenges women encountered in accessing breast reconstruction, despite offering it in her private practice. Upon further investigation, she realized that despite the benefits of a public system, there are still limitations and barriers for breast cancer patients to overcome. Her desire to bridge the information gap for women, prompted her to find a way to inform more women of their option for breast reconstruction through covered health funds and Medicare.
Dr. Dauway has learned that the patient’s journey does not end when treatment is completed. In fact, she follows her patients for 5 years from the time of diagnosis. She has found that many of her patients live with anxiety and fear of a recurrence of breast cancer. As a certified yoga teacher and a mindfulness coach, she began to integrate mindfulness-based practice with her patients. She believes, “why remove a cancer and then allow the patient to continue in the same conditions and mindset that made them ill”. Her view is that surgery is part of the work and mindfulness helps patients move forward and live fully.
