Dr. Fidel Arturo Valea, MD

Gynecologic Oncologist



Fidel Valea, MD is the system chief of gynecologic oncology at Northwell Health and the director of gynecologic oncology for the Northwell Health Cancer Institute. He previously served as the Director of Gynecologic Oncology for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) from 2018-2021 after serving six years as a member of that division. With 25 years of service, he is one of the nation's longest- standing oral board examiners for the ABOG. He also proudly serves on the board of directors of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.Dr. Valea has won numerous regional and national teaching awards. During his 12-year tenure at Stony Brook, he served as the Principal Investigator for the Gynecologic Oncology national study group and Division Head. Afterwards, he was recruited to Duke University School of Medicine where he held several leadership positions, including vice chair of education and both residency director and fellowship director in gynecologic oncology.Among the many clinical trials Dr. Valea has been involved in, he is most known for his work in improving perioperative care (ERAS), surgical education and preinvasive diseases of the cervix. He was also involved in the development of sentinel lymph node mapping for patients with endometrial cancer, a technique for successfully identifying the most important lymph nodes to remove in these patients. Born in Cuba and raised in New York, Dr. Valea was inspired as a child by a close family role model who pursued a path in medicine. He continued to meet mentors in different clinical specialties that cultivated his interest in becoming a surgeon, and specifically a gynecologic oncologist. Although Dr. Valea has a passion for surgery and fixing things with his hands, first and foremost, he's a "people person."Dr. Valea loves the lifelong relationships that he develops in this field. In fact, he keeps every card, and every gift that patients have given him over the years. He takes the time to build a personal connection with not just each patient, but with their support systems as well, so that everyone can feel "happier, safer, connected and more comfortable" through every step of their journey together.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
