• Breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy)
Lumpectomy or Partial Mastectomy is a breast conserving breast cancer procedure where the cancer is removed with a safe margin of surrounding non-cancerous tissue.
• Fiber-optic ductoscopy for nipple discharge
A procedure used to determine the source of nipple discharge. A tiny fiber optic camera is inserted into the duct of the breast to look for abnormalities.
• Skin/nipple-sparing mastectomies for immediate breast reconstruction
A breast cancer procedure removing all of the breast tissue through a small opening in order to leave ample skin for immediate breast reconstruction.
• Sentinel lymph node biopsy for reduced side effects
A breast cancer procedure used to find if cancer has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm. A radioactive tracer is injected around the site of the breast cancer and travels to those lymph nodes most likely to have metastatic disease.
• GeneSearch™ breast lymph node assay
This test finds cancer molecules within the sentinel lymph nodes. The GeneSearch™ test often prevents the need for additional surgery at a later date.
• Venous access port placement for chemotherapy
A catheter surgically placed for ease of intravenous access either for drawing blood or administering medicines. The catheter access device is usually implanted on the chest just under the skin.
• Partial breast irradiation for accelerated treatment and decrease side effects
Radiation therapy delivered by a radiation seed through a catheter placed in the breast at the time of the lumpectomy surgery. This type of radiation therapy takes only 2 weeks to complete with decreased side effects compared with traditional radiation therapy.
• Internationally recognized clinical research
• Clinical trial participation opportunities
We offer enrollment in many surgical and chemotherapy trials that allow patients to take advantage of cutting edge advancements in breast cancer care.
