Dr. Karen Finkelstein


Champion of Women

Dr. Finkelstein’s compassion for patients is almost unheard of in the medical industry of today. She cares for each woman as though she were a member of her own family. Knowing that every moment without a diagnosis and a customized treatment plan is difficult and scary, and that quick action saves lives, Southwest Women’s Oncology expedites and facilitates required testing so that patients may be seen within 48 hours of referral.


Double Board Certified

As a gynecologic oncologist, Dr. Finkelstein maintains double certifications from the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology — one in obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) and the second in the subspecialty of treating gynecologic cancers (GYN/ONC). Dr. Finkelstein excels at minimally invasive robotic surgery and other advanced, state-of-the-art cancer treatments. She and her staff are committed to compassionate care for the whole woman within a family-centered practice. Direct access to both Dr. Finkelstein herself as well as all members of her medical team, coupled with her unique mastery of complex surgery and treatments, are what set this practice apart.

Experience & Expertise

Dr. Finkelstein was the first women’s specialist in New Mexico to receive accreditation as a Master Surgeon in both Robotic Surgery and Minimally Invasive Gynecology. The Master Surgeon certification recognizes surgeons who demonstrate an unparalleled commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based care.
